The Song Company announce their next concert of 2013 titled Song Co & Co - Old Songs, New Songs, Shared Songs featuring the premiere of a satirical cantata entitled "Howls of the House".
A Centenary of Canberra Project, written by Canberra artists, Hal Judge and Tim Hansen, Howls of the House takes a satirical look at life in Parliament House - both chambers as well as the corridors, the estimate rooms and the offices; a city within a city. The piece draws inspiration from both the solemn and serious moments of our parliamentary history as well as the daily spectacle of our political circus.

This new work, a cantata of approximately 20 minutes, is the centre piece of a varied program which will involve participating choirs from each location with the Song Company as its anchor. Collaborating choirs are Wollongong’s con voci, University of Newcastle Chamber Choir, Canberra’s Oriana Chorale, and Leichhardt Espresso Chorus in Sydney.

The Song Company is a unique vocal ensemble in Australia which showcases and celebrates the magic of the human voice. Led by Artistic Director Roland Peelman, the ensemble is made up of six professional singers with an international reputation for outstanding quality and innovation. Through this upcoming program the Song Company aims to share their expertise and knowledge with local community choirs.

A private consortium of donors from Canberra has sourced the funds for this commission and the program is proudly supported by the ACT Government.
