Formed by Debra Shearer-Dirié in 2009, Fusion has become known for its performances of diverse repertoire with exceptional beauty. The group was formed with some of Brisbane’s best and most experienced ensemble singers, most of whom sing regularly with other choirs in and around the city and have extensive performing and touring experience both around Australia and internationally. The singers range across an assortment of careers, from educators to environmental engineers, and from students to musicians. They are drawn together because of their passion for singing and produce an energy in performance that immediately connects with their audience. In programming, Fusion specialises in early and new music – from Jean Mouton and Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla to Cyrillus Kreek, Arvo Pärt, and Henryk Mikolaj Górecki. The ensemble prides itself on delivering an artistic product that combines choral maturity with youthful vibrancy to bring a fresh sound to music that is not often performed in the region. The upcoming concert features music primarily of Spanish & Latin American composers but also includes work by Australian composer Gerardo Dirié who was born in Argentina.
Featured non-Australian music: Music of Spain & Latin America including works by Guerrero, Salazar and Lobo (Spain), Padilla and Fernandez (Mexico), Gavilan (Cuba), Yupanqui arr. Sole (Venezuela), and Guastavino (Argentina)
