Song Company 2014 Concert Season: “A Burning Desire”

22nd – 25th February 2014

The Song Company’s 2014 season marks its 30th anniversary and the final stage of a four year cycle based on the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.  The anniversary year program represents the heat and passion of Fire and the music which expresses it. The season will feature two international Guest Directors; Scottish-based multidisciplinary artist Josh Armstrong, and from Denmark, composer and conductor, Bo Holten. Artistic Director, Roland Peelman says: “Our Elements Cycle started with Bach in 2011, a reminder of where we all come from and the earth we return to. The Cycle finishes in 2014 with Bach, nothing less than his magisterial B Minor Mass, a work of galvanising fiery determination and conviction. That is the fire that sustains and nourishes us through the many activities The Song Company is involved in: concerts, education, tours, recordings and special projects that move the boundaries of our vocal artistry.” For more information, please visit: http://www.songcompany.com.au/concerts/
