Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir and the Vienna Boys’ Choir come together for an exciting world-first collaboration to perform Songs of My Country, a unique celebration of culture and language.
Vienna Boys’ Choir will travel to Australia to perform two uplifting concerts with Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir in Sydney, NSW on October 10, 2017, and Cairns, QLD on October 13, 2017.
The exclusive concerts will feature Australian and Austrian compositions, including the world premiere of a work by Australian composer Owen Elsley written in collaboration with Gudju Gudju of the Gimuy Walibara Yidinji, the Traditional Owners of Cairns (Gimuy).
The new composition, Boori Guman, is based on a local traditional story about the origin of fire and will be performed in English and Gimuy Walibara Yidinji language by the combined ensembles.
The Sydney concert will be held at Sydney Opera House Concert Hall on Tuesday, 10 October 2017 at 7pm, featuring the Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir, Vienna Boys’ Choir and the Sydney Children’s Choir.
