and in the centre we dance - sacred compositions by Jodie O'Regan
6:00pm 13th August 2017 - 8:00pm 13th August 2017
Venue Name: St John's Church
Venue Address: 379 Halifax St Adelaide
Event Type: Concert
In this special event, the entire program will be presented by the singers whose beautiful voices inspired each composition. Sidonie Henbest, Bethany Hill, Hew Wagner, Martin Penhale, Monique Watson, Macintyre Howie-Reeves, Wendy Stanton and Emlyn O’Regan. With a choir assembled specially for the occasion and piano accompaniment from Mark Sandon, and Rachel Bruerville playing Cello.
Some of the pieces have been crafted over many years and are freshly re-interpreted for this concert. Some of the pieces are completely new and you will be there when they are brought to life for the first time. I’ve selected the text carefully for each singer - from poetry by Rumi, Walt Whitman and my own writing, to biblical text with settings of the latin Nicene Creed and Gloria.
The recording will be published online and become a lasting tribute to the concert - a record of the singers, the songs and the people who came to hear and be part of this event.
