Ngarra-Burria 2021 Concert

October 14 @ 6:00 pm

Ngarra-Burria are Dharug words meaning to hear, to sing, and this program is intended to build bridges for First Peoples’ musicians to step forward, further develop their composing skills, and connect with the art music sector. Initiated in 2017 by Aboriginal composer Christopher Sainsbury with partners Moogahlin Performing Arts, Australian Music Centre, ANU and Ensemble Offspring, Ngarra-Burria is aimed at supporting and mentoring emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander composers in developing new techniques and skills in instrumental composition and notation, as well as industry knowledge and relationships. Past composers include Brenda Gifford, Troy Russell, Elizabeth Sheppard, Tim Gray, Rhyan Clapham, Nardi Simpson and James Henry and 2021 will feature the next cohort of impressive First Nations musical voices from around Australia – from Redfern to Darwin!
