The Song Company
The Song Company belongs to a land whose first peoples have always used songlines and vocal music to pass knowledge and culture from one generation to another. We acknowledge and respect those traditions and are honoured to work together with Indigenous creative artists as part of our artistic mission.
The Song Company brings together the country’s finest voices in innovative performances, artist development, educational outreach and collaborative music-making across art forms. It is at the forefront of both early music performance practice and contemporary Australian vocal music through an extensive commissioning program, begun in the late 1980's.
As Australia's leading professional vocal ensemble, The Song Company is unique in its stylistic diversity with repertoire spanning the 9th century to today, and is led by Artistic Director, international composer and conductor, Antony Pitts. With an annual national touring season, The Song Company is at the forefront of both early music performance and contemporary vocal music through an extensive commissioning program and cross-artform collaborations with artists of the highest calibre from around the world.
The Song Company comprises eight Principal Artists, as well as Guest Artists from across the country who are established soloists and musical leaders in their own right, with a wider collective of Associate Artists made up of familiar and emerging voices, and at the heart, a consort of four Ensemble Artists mentored by Associate Artistic Director, Francis Greep. Together we are reshaping the professional vocal landscape in Australia for today and the next generation.
