Rai, that little magic man and our songs

A meeting of song stories, on sacred ground.

Come to listen and meet our artists.
The legendary Yorta Yorta soprano Deborah Cheetham AO returns to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, mentoring and performing with Sydney’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander musicians and music students from the University of Sydney and the EORA Centre in Sydney.
Just letting you know, that on the 13th December 12 midday till 3:30pm, at the Sydney Conservatorium, I’ll be presenting a concert of indigenous music, with  Aboriginal and Torres Str Is  singers from around Sydney,  in collaboration with Yorta-Yorta soprano Deborah Cheetham’s ‘Short Black Opera’ company.

It’s a free admission concert (bring your lunch, as it goes right across lunchtime) with a 20 min interval at 1:30pm.

You’ll notice on the poster, the beautiful coloured image:Slide1

It is painted by Rusty Peters, one of Alana’s dearest friends in Warmun, WA. Rusty is an important Aboriginal artist and Giga elder of the East Kimberly,W.A

He  painted a  2nd version of this work , especially for Alana.
