Blue Sky Country Christmas
Experience a unique musical performance with River City Voices’ 'Blue Sky Country Christmas'. Join us on December 8 2023 for an inspiring night of song that will leave your heart soaring and your spirit uplifted.
River City Voices (RCV) is honoured to be the Ensemble in Residence for the esteemed Ngarra-burria: First Peoples Composers program, marking a historic collaboration. This remarkable union brings together the sheer power of a 50+ voice choir with the visionary talents of composers: Marlene Cummins, Gavi Duncan, Tim Gray, Nicole Smede, program founder Dr Chris Sainsbury, and Elizabeth Sheppard, a program alumna.
'Blue Sky Country Christmas' is a highlight of RCV's Brave series, an initiative dedicated to pushing the boundaries of artistic expression. In this instance, the spotlight shines on the Indigenous composers, whose creativity challenges the norms of the classical music sphere. This concert celebrates their exceptional contributions to Australian music.
The program of new songs offers a captivating blend of genres, personal narratives, and diverse experiences, and an opportunity to celebrate First Peoples culture. Plus, for those who love Christmas carols, 'Blue Sky Country Christmas' will offer a fresh perspective. These compositions are emotionally charged and profoundly evocative, promising to resonate deeply.
Don't miss this extraordinary event, a testament to the collaborative spirit of RCV and the visionary composers who are taking their places at the forefront of Australian music-making. Secure your tickets now and be part of a musical journey that celebrates diversity, creativity, and the unifying power of music.
