Song Company

Vocal Ensemble

The Song Company is an a cappella ensemble of six professional singers.  From its beginnings in 1984, the ensemble has grown to exemplify its aim of providing for Australia a group capable of international standard performances in the field of vocal chamber music.  Under the guidance of Roland Peelman, Artistic Director since 1990, that goal has developed into exploring and creating new repertoire for the voice and building the expertise to match.  Over 30 years, the ensemble’s schedule has grown to include a mix of national and international touring, a subscription series in cities across Australia, recording and broadcast projects, education activities, and special collaborative projects.

The Song Company’s repertoire covers vocal music from the 12th century to contemporary classical works, and is unique in its stylistic diversity.   The company remains at the forefront of contemporary vocal music through an extensive commissioning program and collaborations with artists and composers of the highest calibre from around the world.  A longstanding commitment to education sees the company regularly perform in schools throughout the country, including bringing music workshops to children in regional and remote areas.
The Song Company looks forward to many years of continued innovation and excellence in vocal music.
