- WHAT'S ON
The Song Company is Australia’s preeminent a cappella ensemble comprised of six professional singers. From its beginnings in 1984, the ensemble has grown to exemplify Australian artists of international calibre in the field of vocal chamber music. The company’s schedule has grown to include a mix of national and international touring, a subscription series in cities across Australia, recording and broadcast projects, education activities, and special cross-artform collaborative projects.
The company’s repertoire covers vocal music from the 12th Century to contemporary works, and is unique in its stylistic diversity. The company remains at the forefront of contemporary vocal music through an extensive commissioning program and collaborations with artists and composers of the highest calibre from around the world. A longstanding commitment to education sees the company regularly perform in schools throughout the country, including taking music workshops to children, students and adults in regional and remote areas.
In 2016 The Song Company welcomes new Artistic Director, Antony Pitts. A British composer, producer, conductor and teacher, Antony’s career has combined academic, industry and professional musical experience at world-class levels.
“It’s a wonderful privilege to be opening this new chapter for The Song Company, plus a significant challenge building on Roland’s legacy – under his direction The Song Company has made people think again about what the human voice can do.”
The Song Company looks forward to many years of continued innovation and excellence in vocal music.
