Baroque palaces, cobbled squares, pilsner moustaches and thousands of spires as far as the eye can see. The city of Prague might be best known for its fairytale architecture and enticing Pilsner, but Prague’s true essence is not beer or structural design, but music.

Enter Andrea Keller, a Sydney raised, Melbourne based composer who is one of the most original personalities to emerge on the Australian jazz scene over the last decade. A poet at the keyboard and a magician with her regular band, Andrea has joined forces with The Song Company to create a breathtakingly beautiful program that combines Janáček, the touchstone of all Czech music, and Australia’s Martin Wesley-Smith. The concert is rounded off with songs by the inimitable Iva Bittová, and a number of songs by Andrea Keller written while visiting Prague during 2002.

Let your imagination run wild as Andrea and The Song Company take you on a spine tingling journey through one of the world’s most beautiful and cultured cities.

Since its formation in 1984, The Song Company has provided audiences with international standard performances in the field of vocal chamber music. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Roland Peelman, the six-voice ensemble has developed its style by successfully integrating serious scholarship, tonal clarity, vocal daring and unbridled performance dynamics.

Andrea Keller was raised by Czech parents in Australia, and is one of the most original musicians to emerge on the Australian jazz scene over the last decade. Her composition work often takes its starting point from a classical source, more often than not triggered by a family story.
