Four of Australia’s finest vocalists come together in a visionary performance combining heavenly vocals in a chamber setting. Katie Noonan’s new project, Australian Vocal Ensemble – AVÉ intertwines Australian compositions by Cawrse, Davidson, Green, Humphries, Hurren, Leek, Noonan and Wells, alongside new arrangements of music by Bach, Handel and Tomás Luis de Victoria creating a beautiful tension between ties to more traditional European music and modern Australian classical. Committed to telling uniquely Australian stories, AVÉ presents these new works based on the poetry of iconic Australian writer David Malouf.
