What happens when Vox, Sydney’s sassiest and smartest group of young choristers meets Halcyon, acclaimed champions of new music for voice? The result is a musical feast of recently composed works from around the world, including some beautiful gems by our own Australian composers. From the dreamy, surreal sounds of Saariaho's Nuit, Adieux to the dancing rhythms of Ross Edwards Mantras and Alleluyas, this adventurous program features Vox at their most fearless, with Halcyon's quartet of soloists, percussionist Claire Edwardes and Vox's Musical Director Elizabeth Scott.
