Australian Voices give orchestra a piece of their mind in an unusual concert.

This was one of the most unusual concerts of the year.

Starting with Sibelius’ epic En Saga, ending in the fever dreams of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, and with the premiere of a quirky choral work by Gordon Hamilton in the middle, it truly was an oddball concert.
