Tour Concept

SINGING TO THE HEART is a singing journey into the heart of Australia under the musical directorship of SUE JOHNSON, one the most original, inspiring and talented Australian choir directors. This extraordinary journey will travel not just to the physical heart of Australia, but to the heart of things; of nature, of people and of history.

In the tradition of Aboriginals who ‘sung up’ the country in order to give it meaning, Sue will bring both her original music and mastery of ‘improv’ to connect to landscape and people. Apart from being an extraordinary travel experience, this will be a musical tour de force.

After a glorious first five days in the remote South Australia town of Quorn, where we develop our repertoire, the choir travels and sings in remote Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities as well as in some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. 

This beautiful owl is just one of the friends you'll meet on the journey

The landscapes and places through which we travel and sing are some of the most powerful on earth: the majestic Flinders Ranges; the moonscapes of Coober Pedy; in the underground Serbian Church at Coober Pedy; under Uluru at sunset, in the remote Aboriginal Communities of Hermannsburg; in the ancient gorges of the MacDonnell Ranges and in classic Australian remote towns. 

Amazing landscapes such as this one
This will be a gig of epic proportions, an incredible journey into a parallel universe, made accessible through the power of music to connect us on an individual and community level.
