findr: a new song cycle by Adrian Kingwell April 2018

“The music in Findr is sensational. Musicians and performers carried each other equally and drew the audience into moments of yearning, fear, loneliness as well as moments of lightness, hope and humour.

This new work from composer Adrian Kingwell is heartfelt, incredibly appropriate for the time, and executed with finesse.”


Karen Carey’s Thankyou Concert: August 2014


Mozart and Salieri: June 2014

“The use of orchestra to accompany all soloists and also the featured chamber opera is a satisfying part of attending any program performed by this group.”

“The orchestra was again a good support for the voices and the compact drama. It maintained the forward direction needed to deliver Rimsky-Korsakov’s score. Sections in contrasted styles, playing of modern and traditional shapes, motivic shifts and moments of quoting other composer’s material were well managed across the orchestra.”

“In August, the performances of Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci should not be missed.”

“We have just come home from your “Songs of Love and Passion” concert at the Lavender Bay Church, and we wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the performance by all of you.  It was an utterly delicious performance of utterly delicious music. Thank You so much! Please let us know if you are planning to do anything similar in the future.

Many thanks and kind regards,
Reg and Pauleen”

“I was just so inspired by your wonderful concert last night.  It was a priviledge to hear such lovely, beautiful, intelligent and talented girls perform (in Songs of Love and Passion). (along with Glenn of course).

The venue was intimate and the acoustics just fitting for such music.
Please let me know when you may perform again and I will persuade other people to come to enjoy your talents.

“The singing and instrumentals seemed to be of a very high standard, the gowns were gorgeous and the venue
was perfect. Thankyou for organising the evening and for supporting MS Australia.
Many,many thanks and hope you get some well-earned rest.
Kathryn and Jeremy”

“…it was excellent and I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls (with the singer and flautist) was to die for, my copy is Yvonne Kenny. Your violinist and flautist were excellent {move over Jane Rutter} what a group of beautiful young people.
It was worth the nine hour drive to be at the charming Albert Hall
Best wishes from Sydney,
