Event Details

Halcyon returns to the stage with After Dark - new Australian music for voice and cello.

The program features works that have been a long time in limbo. Four works commissioned by Halcyon early in 2020 will receive their long-delayed premieres - Luke Styles’ Starfish, Anthony Moles’ Mantoux, Cameron Lam's Persephone as a Whistling Moth and Ghosts, a new song cycle by Nicole Murphy. Also on the program are premieres of Andrew Ford, Sadie Harrison, Alisha Redmond and Brad Taylor-Newling and recent works by Alan Holley, Gordon Kerry, Aristea Mellos and Gillian Whitehead.

There has been so much 'pivotting' in recent years as artists have tried to make viable plans in an uncertain world and weathered the dark times of isolation. Live performance, where an audience experiences that moment of musical creation in real time in a shared moment with the performers, is unlike anything we can conjure on a screen. Showcasing a wealth of contemporary Australian composers across several generations, join Halcyon's artistic director, mezzo-soprano Jenny Duck-Chong and cellist James Larsen for this intimate performance.
