Gondwana Choirs Collaboration
Our weekend with the ACO Inspire Quartet could not have been more successful.- Lyn Williams OAM, Artistic Director & Founder
In March 2016 and 2017, the ACO Inspire Quartet traveled to Cairns to attend the Gondwana Cairns Indigenous Children’s Choir’s annual weekend music camp. At the camp, they worked with the choristers on a range of activities, including workshopping a new work by Sydney composer Luke Byrne. Stormbird, based around stories from local Cairns Yidinji Elder, Seith Fourmileand, its companion piece Mantra, were commissioned for a performance by ACO Collective and the Cairns Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir at Tanks Arts Centre in 2017.
