Songmakers Australia celebrates 10 years with a ravishing bouquet of great songs.

Unique in the musical landscape of Australia, Songmakers Australia brings together some of the country’s leading singers and instrumentalists in a diverse repertoire comprising some of the pinnacles of all chamber music. Under the artistic patronage of Graham Johnson, founding director of the acclaimed London-based Songmakers Almanac, pianist Andrea Katz teams with soprano Merlyn Quaife, mezzo-soprano Christina Wilson, tenor Brenton Spiteri and bass-baritone Nicholas Dinopoulos in inspired programs that feature a dynamic interplay of song and chamber music.

About this concert

Leading vocal ensemble Songmakers Australia captivates with a garland of songs, dedications and serenades. The delightful collection of flower-inspired songs features duets and trios by great masters, including Robert Schumann’s romantic Mit Myrten und Rosen (With Myrtles & Roses), and English and Australian classics, such as Percy Grainger’s lovesick Willow, Willow. Dedicated to its fans and newcomers on the 10th anniversary of Songmakers’ debut, this enchanting concert is a perfect fit for the intimate beauty of the Primrose Potter Salon.
