Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RINGWOOD, Australia - Aug 11, 2016 - About:
DESERT SONG FESTIVAL IS THE LATEST AND MOST EXCITING ARTISTIC ADDITION TO THE ALREADY AMAZING CENTRAL AUSTRALIAN CULTURAL CALENDAR.
Over 10 days each September, singers, choirs and audiences from Alice Springs and Central Australia and visitors to the region experience something special. Choirs from the vibrant multi-cultural community come together to present a series of events that showcase the voice: the singer and the song.
Asante Sana and other Alice-based choirs, small vocal ensembles, individual performers, and ensembles from different sacred music traditions join together in a number of events over 10 days in a celebration of the singer and the song -through major concerts, chamber concerts, workshops and an open stage.
African freedom songs, Aboriginal traditional and sacred music, ballads, classical compositions, Caribbean folk music and a cappella singing all make their appearance on the cultural smorgasbord that is Central Australia. Desert Song Festival 2016 will be the fourth annual Centralian Singers’ Festival: an exciting celebration of music, now including a substantial instrumental and Chamber Concert series.
The Festival this year will facilitate and feature performances by and collaborations between local and visiting choirs, skills building workshops in the community and in Alice Springs Schools, together with ‘East Marries West’ the Festival’s ‘International Artist in Residence’ for 2016. A singing and cultural tour through the West Mac Donnell Ranges will be another significant festival event.
Desert Song 2016 will stage workshops and major concerts in iconic Central Australian locations in Alice Springs and in the East and West MacDonnell Ranges. It will also feature the highly popular festival club ‘Desert Song Central’- at Yaye’s Alice Springs’ newest café – a place where festivalgoers can relax after major events, enjoy an excellent menu and listen to performances from a diverse pool of brilliant local artists.
