Godwits Premiere at World Migratory Bird Day

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of conducting the Spotswood Primary School Choir and the Newport Community Choir in the premiere performance of Godwits at the World Migratory Bird Day celebrations at the Newport Hub.

The piece sets text from The Yellow Sea by leading Australian poet Barry Hill, and forms part of a short suite -Songs for Birds - commissioned for the City of Hobsons Bay in Melbourne's West. The full suite will be performed later in the year at the Newport Substation.

Thanks and congratulations to the choirs, who performed the piece three times to great acclaim!
