“Twinkle, twinkle, little star…”
This new intimate mini-series, SongCo Solo, gives you the chance to hear individual singers from The Song Company as soloists.
Andrew O’Connor (Bass-Baritone) and Anna Rutkowska-Schock (Piano) perform music of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Ivor Gurney, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Iain Grandage, Martin Wesley-Smith and Eric Whitacre – in a recital program that centres around Nocturnes, Nature, and Nursery Rhymes.
Andrew O’Connor was born in Perth, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Australia, before developing a successful teaching career in Perth, and performing both around Australia and internationally in opera, oratorio, art song, and consort singing. He relocated to Sydney in 2015, becoming the newest full-time singer in The Song Company. Andrew also appears regularly with Sydney’s leading early and contemporary music ensembles including Pinchgut Opera, Bach Akademie Australia, Cantillation, St Mary’s Cathedral Choir, Choir of St James, Sydney Antiphony, and Hourglass Ensemble.
