Experience a musical Superbloom with The Song Company in a captivating journey inspired by nature's miracles

"Superbloom" is the phenomenon in which the desert landscape receives an unusual season of rain such that the next spring brings forth carpets of rare displays of flowers. Immerse yourself in this magical and musical "Superbloom" - a program of rare works for unaccompanied voices that draws parallels between the stark beauty of the arid desert and the lush abundance brought by the wet season. Acclaimed Australian-American soprano and composer Jane Sheldon makes her directorial debut with The Song Company. Her artistry has created a musical journey that connects historical compositional giants such as Hildegard von Bingen and Carlo Gesualdo with contemporary composers Rebecca Saunders, Chaya Czernowin and James Weeks. Plus, be among the first to experience a brand-new work composed by the talented Jane Sheldon herself. The Song Company has been captivating audiences with adventurous "a cappella" singing programming for 40 years. Join Australia's world-class vocal ensemble in the intimacy of the Utzon Room for this unforgettable experience that celebrates both the resilience of the desert and the creativity of the human spirit.
