Have The Australian Voices give a classical music concert at your school, perhaps at lunchtime or during assembly. The repertoire includes dynamic and accessible Australian compositions, as well as important works from the European sacred music tradition. Artistic Director Gordon Hamilton walks the students through the music, explaining musical details and interesting stories about the works. The concert is interactive: students have the opportunity to sing, conduct and ask questions.
