Are you passionate about seeing more female composers on concert programs?
Then join our first commissioning circle and be part of creating a new work from an emerging female composer.
In our year celebrating the work of women, we are calling for a bunch of passionate people to raise $3000 in supporting the commission and workshopping of a new commission by the talented Sydney-based composer Fiona Hill, for premiere in 2018.
Whether it's $25 or $500 - every single donation makes a difference!
Make some noise with a pledge to be part of our inaugural Noisy Women commissioning circle.
Donations $100 and over will be acknowledged in programs and on the score. Donations $250 and over will also be invited to rehearsals of the work.
Fiona Hill creates experimental, freethinking, beautiful music. She sources sounds from nature and industrial environments and blends these in a musical space incorporating acoustic instruments and live performers.
Fiona was Composer in Residence at Trinity Grammar School for nine years and has studied composition in Paris, Montreal, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, under composers Graeme Koehne, Trevor Pearce, Martin Armiger, Jean Lesage and Sean Ferguson. She holds a Masters in Screen Composition from the Australian Film Television and Radio School. Electroacoustic projects include: an extended work Chromoson (2010) for electronics, solo soprano, and film in 10 channel surround sound with multiple projections and Unity in Blue (2008) for 9 musicians and electroacoustics. Other recent projects include TV series A Dog's Tale (2017), audiobook Toilers of the Sea (2015) and short film Milk and Cookies, shortlisted for Tropfest (2014).
