Songs for the Open Road was our Season Opening Gala for 2023, held against the stunning backdrop of the Yarra River at The Edge, Federation Square in March. This year's concert season is all about celebrating singers and songs and the magic of singing in community.
Headlined by The Vocal Consort, this performance also featured the Australian Boys Choir Performing Squad and members of the Kelly Gang and our Tyro, Junior Singer and Cambiata Training Groups in some terrific massed repertoire.
Australian music was again a strong focus in this concert, with music by Paul Stanhope, Dan Walker, Stephen Leek, Dulcie Holland and the mesmerising harmonic singing of Sarah Hopkin's 'Past Life Melodies' involving all of our singers to create one impressively big sound.This program also marked the start of our second Australian Digital Concert Hall broadcast season. We've been thrilled to partner again with ADCH this year and you can watch highlights from the livestream below.
