junior gondwana voices 2015

January 18, 2015 , , , , , , ,

Composing for the Sydney Children’s and Gondwana Voices Choirs has been a total, absolute, utter honour + pleasure! At this year’s national choral school, the Junior Gondwana Voices performed 2 of my works: “Like, Eleven” and “The Tango of Thirteen”, from a set of musical vignettes entitled, “Conversations With The Heart.”

One of my MAGIC MOMENTS this week? Having Elizabeth Vierboom + Paul Jarman, the 2015 Junior Gondie Voices conductors, call me mid-rehearsal from Sydney for the choir to perform “The Tango of Thirteen” for me. LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT! The chance to say hello to the choristers! Having the most humungous + excited “HIIIIIIIII ANNNNNNNNNNIIIIEEEE!’ yelled over the phone at me! Me, bursting into spontaneous laughter at their comic timing + completely schlick handling of all the musical challenges of the piece!

Awesome!

“Tango of Thirteen” was originally composed as part of my work as the Young Adelaide Voices Composer-in-Residence for 2011-12. The piece is a tongue-in-cheek warning to parents to tread carefully as their darling pre-teen is about to change, inexplicably, when they hit the dreaded teens.

Be afraid, be very, very afraid!
