As the world continues to face many challenges, the Melbourne International Singers Festival (#MISF20) is excited to explore the theme of ‘Home’ through voice and song for the first time this year.

MISF has always had a commitment to premiering new Australian works, and 2020 sees the world premiere of three Australian works that explore the theme of ‘Home’ by the multi-award-winning Choir of Hard Knocks, a new choral work for children’s choir by Mark Puddy and an exciting newly commissioned massed choral work by Play It Forward, in addition to the Australian premiere of Kirby Shaw’s brand new work, Turn the World Around, recently premiered at Carnegie Hall, New York.

Along with the return of the legendary master of pop, swing and jazz choral arrangements, Kirby Shaw from the USA, MISF are also thrilled to announce that the inspiring Bosnian-Australian artist, Dr Nela Trifkovic, will lead the Women’s Festival Chorus, and Hephzibah Tintner award-winning conductor, Patrick Burns, Director of the Choral Program, will lead the Men’s Festival Chorus.
