The Glad Tomorrow: Katie Noonan & The Australian String Quartet
For the first time ever Australian powerhouse and 5 x ARIA Award Winner Katie Noonan will be performing with The Australian String Quartet.
Setting the words of the uniquely Australian poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal to music, Katie Noonan has commissioned ten stellar Australian contemporary composers to create a song cycle based on Oodgeroo’s poetry, to be performed with the brilliant Australian String Quartet (ASQ).
Katie and the ASQ will be performing pieces written for them by Carl Vine, Elena Kats Chernin, Richard Tognetti, Iain Grandage, David Hirschfelder as well as Queensland composers Thomas Green, Robert Davidson, Connor D’Netto, William Barton and Katie herself.
The Glad Tomorrow project brings together 4 distinct worlds – Contemporary Australian and Queensland Composers, the searing poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal, ASQ and Katie Noonan’s unique voice and innate musicality.
For the Oodgeroo Noonuccal project – Katie Noonan and ASQ will be performing together for the first time in Australia. Such a unique combination of creative powerhouses will result in some spectacular and spine tingling performances.
‘As a fiercely proud Queenslander and in a project that is celebrating an extraordinary Queensland woman, I am immensely proud to share in this World Premiere with these four wonderful and world class musicians.’ Katie Noonan
