Serenading Adela Choir is a 50-voice choir formed as part of a large community project based in the northern Melbourne suburbs of Brunswick and Coburg. The choir performed for the first time in January 2017 at The Boite Singers Festival, premiering the new commissioned work Ghosts Don’t Lie by Stephen Taberner. This work will form part of a large “street opera” in early 2018, commemorating extraordinary events in the Anti-Conscription Campaign during World War 1.
Jeannie is Artistic Director of the Serenading Adela Street Opera, and is working on researching, developing, creating, rehearsing, directing and conducting the project throughout 2017. The Street Opera will involve brass bands, massed choirs, percussion, soloists, re-enactment of historic events, and new music created for the project.
Rehearsals: rehearsals will begin later in 2017.
Contact Jeannie for further information if you (or your choir members) are interested in singing in this unique project.
