Some of our most recent events are outlined below.

A return to Dan Walker’s Mass of Deliverance at Marrickville Town Hall. First written for us in 2014, now with 3 new movements.
Our first live concert in more than two years saw us return gloriously to the Hunter Baillie with a topical update of Handel.
