Praise Bee - soul-quaking song, sumptuous food and sparkling wine, with soloists from the Sydney Creation Chorale and special guest Mama Alto.
One night only. SATURDAY 29 APRIL
A selection of musical and culinary pleasures from CREATION.
CREATION invites you to participate in a unique ceremonial concert of new sacred music composed by Lex Lindsay, sung by soloists of the CREATION chorale with very special guest Mama Alto. The song suite, written especially for trans, queer and non-binary voices, brings to life commissioned poetry interpreting SJ Norman's magnificent Liturgy of the Saprophyte, the text at the heart of CREATION.
Sacrilegious finger foods will express the Liturgy's celebration of the holy practice of delectation.
