Visions of Tomorrow
Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre
Directed by Steven Hodgson
What legacy are we leaving for future generations?
What possible futures do we imagine emerging from the present?
The Consort of Melbourne explores visions of the future through the art of forward-thinking composers such as Hildegard, Perotin, Solage and Gesualdo. Revolutionary in their own time, hear how they foretold new directions for music and opened the door to sound worlds still being explored today.
The Consort of Melbourne is a professional vocal ensemble that champions both historic and contemporary chamber vocal repertoire. It comprises a core membership of eight singers, which expands or shrinks as the repertoire demands.
The Consort has presented a regular concert series in the Melbourne Recital Centre for many years, and has also been invited to collaborate with groups such as the Rolling Stones, Kronos Quartet, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Youth Orchestra, the Song Company and La Compania.
