Celebrate the common humanity in these different but connected traditions.
Vocal Ensemble performs an eclectic mix of exquisite music under the direction of award-winning composer, Judy Stubbs, including a recently completed Mass (‘Under One Sky’) inspired by her travels to Syria and other parts of the Middle East, fusing Gregorian and Sufi chant.
Folkier Than Alice
Acclaimed cabaret act Funkier Than Alice returns to their Celtic roots as FOLKIER THAN ALICE (Judy Stubbs, Rita Woolhouse, Nicole Murphy, Johnny Spillane and Siobhan Mewes), but the harmonies are still ‘to die for’ (Time Out, Mumbai).
Egypsy creates a unique fusion of Middle Eastern and European music showcasing stunning guitar virtuosity of Sako Dermenjian on Guitar and the haunting enchantment of Nad Ragheb on Nay (ancient bamboo flute).
Steel City Strings
Musicians from Steel City Strings, the Illawarra’s own professional string orchestra – Kyle Little (Violin), Rita Woolhouse (Cello) and Miffy Ryan (Viola).
