Event Details

For the first time ever, powerhouse Katie Noonan will be joined by the acclaimed Australian String Quartet for a national tour of their new project ‘The Glad Tomorrow’.

The new album sees Katie set the uniquely Australian poetry of Queenslander and First Nations icon Oodgeroo Noonuccal to music, commissioning ten stellar Australian contemporary composers to create a song cycle based on Oodgeroo’s poetry, bringing together 4 distinct worlds – Contemporary Australian and Queensland Composers, the searing poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal, the Australian String Quartet and Katie Noonan’s unique voice and innate musicality.

This unique combination of creative powerhouses will deliver a spectacular and spine-tingling live performance.

Further information for this event is available online at the event's website or by phone on 1800 040 444 or by email to asq@asq.com.au
