The Song Company – The Arrow of Song

Vocalisation is all about the sound and the story. The Song Company of Australia comprises the continent’s leading vocalists, singing music of all times and places.

The Song Company will be returning to Orange to deliver their concert program The Arrow of Song October 14th.

The concert’s repertoire is drawn from many years’ educational work by The Song Company. This chronological program captures the long and fascinating history of unaccompanied vocal music in a unique timeline that is both informative and entertaining – from early chant to contemporary forms of a cappella singing. Hearing how harmony and notation have developed into many styles and genres over the last two thousand years inspires and encourages people of all ages to find their voice in the ongoing story of a cappella.
