Espresso Chorus in Limelight


Sally Whitwell writes about her new work commissioned by Leichhardt Espresso Chorus for our upcoming 'S' concert.

Limelight Magazine has printed Sally's recent blog post, a thoughtful monologue about making classical music relevant.

Sally says about her work "….it’s a little contemporary eco-allegorical choral work that I’m contributing to both causes. It was commissioned by an amateur community choir the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus directed by Michelle Leonard one of the most adventurous classical music professionals I know, so it’s breaking down the barriers again between ordinary folks and classical music folks".

Espresso Chorus continues to support Australian composers through our extensive commissioning program.  Over our 16 years the choir has commissioned over 100 new works from composer too numerous to name.  See our Musicians page for more info. Many of our commissions have been made possible by the generous donations from our community to our tax deductible public fund.  Click here to learn more or make a donation.

Come to the concert on June 14th and 15th to hear Sally's work.
