Hear beautiful music expressing the six aspects of the human voice at a mid-year concert series.

Serendipity’s One Earth – Many Voices aims to remind the audience of the diversity of human communication across the globe.

Serendipity’s Janet King said the aspects of human voice, including nature, the divine, the oppresed and the worker, would be expressed through song.

“The signature piece Earth Song is wonderfully evocative and expresses a desire for peace and the power of music to heal,” she said. 

The Seal Lullaby is another delightful song with a gentle wave-like rocking rhythm.”

Two well-known pieces included in the repertoire are Day-O and A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square, and a number of pieces have solo sections to demonstrate the choir’s vocal talent.

The ‘Australian voice’ includes a special arrangement of Waltzing Matilda and Black Crows by choirmaster and composer Stephen Leek. These songs will also be performed during the choir’s tour of New Zealand later this year.

Ms King said there would also be fun moments in the program.

“We have Golliwog’s Cakewalk sung in scat form, arranged by our accompanist Ann and Jabberwocky, Lewis Carroll’s poem set to music,” she said.

There will be three performances of this concert series.

The first will be held June 3 at 3.00pm at the Mittagong Playhouse. The choir will then head to Bundanoon’s Soldiers’ Memorial Hall to perform on June 16 at 6.00pm and June 17 at 3.00pm.

Tickets are $20 per person and refreshments are included.
