Katie Noonan & Australian String Quartet
Date / Time
The new album sees Katie set the uniquely Australian poetry of Queenslander and First Nations icon Oodgeroo Noonuccal to music, commissioning ten stellar Australian contemporary composers to create a song cycle based on Oodgeroo’s poetry, bringing together 4 distinct worlds – Contemporary Australian and Queensland Composers, the searing poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal, the Australian String Quartet and Katie Noonan’s unique voice and innate musicality. This unique combination of creative powerhouses will deliver spectacular and spine-tingling live performances in some of Australia’s finest theatre settings.
For more than 20 years, Katie Noonan has been one of Australia’s most revered musical talents. A mother, singer, songwriter, producer, pianist, artistic director and fierce champion of the arts, Noonan’s career has seen her win five ARIA Awards, go seven times platinum, release over a dozen studio albums and be named one of the greatest Australian singers of all time by the Herald Sun.
