The Consort of Melbourne
Sunday 3 July, 3pm
St George’s, Travancore
The Consort of Melbourne is Melbourne’s premier vocal ensemble, comprising some of this city’s finest chamber singers under the artistic direction of Steven Hodgson. Typically performing a capella (unaccompanied) with one singer per part, The Consort of Melbourne champions both historic and contemporary repertoire, bringing 1000 years of vocal music to life with an intimacy and verve that leaves audiences spellbound. Our programmes include celebrated masterpieces heard alongside lesser-known gems, exploring the full expressive potential of human voices combined.
The Consort has presented a regular concert series at the Melbourne Recital Centre for many years, and has also been invited to collaborate with groups such as the Rolling Stones, Spiritualized, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Song Company, La Compañia, Miranda Hill’s Homophonic! and Deborah Cheetham’s Short Black Opera.
