Espresso Chorus: Fiat Lux – The Light Cycle

1 October 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT

TICKETS: $40 Adult | $35 Concession

Eight songs for massed voices and electronics

“We perceive light most brightly when it is surrounded by darkness. Fiat Lux illuminates aspects of beauty and hope in a shadowy present day.” Alice Chance, composer.

The glistening voices of Leichhardt Espresso Chorus and The Song Company are set against a backdrop of sparkling electronic accompaniment and glowing soundscapes for this world premiere of an exquisite new work by one of Australia’s finest young composers, Alice Chance.

This extraordinary collection of songs, directed by Michelle Leonard OAM, draws from different aspects of light, examined in a broad spectrum of contexts, including the historical, scientific, artistic and sacred.
