The Redfern Oratorio - Premier Performance

What you'll learn

The premier performance of - The Redfern Oratorio

The Music Director of the Sydney Community College Choir and the Sydney University Graduate Choir, Christopher Bowen OAM, has composed a major new choral work, based on the nationally significant Redfern speech of December 1992 given by then Prime Minister, Paul Keating. The Redfern speech was an important event in Australian history and in the development of Australia's relationship with its indigenous people. The Albanese Government's intention to implement the Uluru Statement from the Heart has given a renewed salience to the issues touched on in Paul Keating's Redfern speech.

Christopher Bowen's new work, entitled The Redfern Oratorio, with a libretto by Pamela Traynor has been commissioned by Robyn Williams AO, the well-known ABC science broadcaster. The Choir plans to perform it in its Sydney SingsTM concert for 2022. The Sydney Sings TM series of concerts is held in the Sydney Town Hall and permits us to program major works involving forces too large for our performance space in the Great Hall at Sydney University. In recent years, the Choir has presented in this series Brahms's A German Requiem, Verdi's Requiem, several performances of Handel's Messiah and, in August 2014 and November 2018, to considerable acclaim, Christopher Bowen's An Australian War Requiem.
