Stephen Leek and The Australian Voices on tour
Stephen Leek and The Australian Voices choir have embarked on an Asian tour with a program of exclusively Australian choral music. The tour has already taken the choir to Singapore and the Malaysian Penang music festival; currently the choir is travelling to Taiwan, where the tour will continue with five concerts (11-16 July), some of them in cooperation with the Taiwan National Youth Choir. The program of the tour features music by Daniel Walker, Matthew Orlovich, Lisa Young , Gerard Brophy, Ross Edwards, Robert Davidson, Clare Maclean and Stephen Leek.
Back home, The Australian Voices will give a special 'Sounds of Perfection' concert in the Queensland Conservatorium Theatre on 27 August to farewell Stephen Leek and to celebrate his 16-year association with the choir. For this concert, The Australian Voices will be joined by the conductor and educator Anne Williams and her Eltham East Primary School Choir, all the way from Victoria.
