Bois - co-presented with Exaudi Youth Choir

Bois (Fr. ”wood”) takes us on a journey through an exploration of our identity, using new and old ideas Forest Collective and Exaudi Youth Choir explore how one can grow and dream in our ”urban bois.” The performance will feature exciting contempory works by prominent Australian composers, including the premier of a new work for the joint ensemble by Forest Collective’s artistic director Evan Lawson; works from the traditional and contempory chamber music cannon are pitted against new works exploring music within improvised, collaborative and theoretical contexts.

So please join Australian Choral Eisteddfod Champions Exaudi Youth Choir and the new vibrant ensemble Forest Collective for an evening of new experiences.
