Songs Of Hope
A stellar line-up of artists, headlined by Casey Donovan will light up QPAC's Concert Hall for the annual Songs of Hope concert on Tuesday, 6 June 2023.
One of Australia's most versatile and beloved performers, Casey is a proud Gumbaynggirr and Dungatti woman and multi-award winning artist in the areas of music, stage, screen, presenting and writing, who most recently starred in musical theatre productions Chicago and 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL.
In Songs of Hope, Casey performs alongside some of Australia’s most respected artists and ensembles including Matt Hsu’s Obscure Orchestra, electronic duo Zemzemeh, hip hop visionary Ozi Jarel, singer-songwriter Menaka Thomas, accompanied by Meg Burstow and Tsoof Baras, Multicultural Australia and QPAC’s MOSAIC Choir and the QPAC Chamber Choir.
QPAC has presented Songs of Hope (formerly Songs of Hope and Healing) annually since 2015 (apart from a two-year hiatus due to COVID) to raise awareness and funds for HEAL (Healing through Expressive Arts and Learning), a charity providing expressive arts therapies to young people from refugee backgrounds in Queensland.
Hosted by Queensland Poetry Slam champion and comedian Anisa Nanduala, audiences are invited to enjoy an evening of world music and connection, while supporting a great cause that’s close to home.
For the first-time patrons also have the opportunity to give the gift of live performance to a member of the Queensland refugee community who may otherwise not be able to attend. The Pay it Forward ticket * initiative helps make the arts accessible to all and connects Queensland’s diverse cultural communities with the performing arts.
Don’t miss this heart-warming one-night-only event with a stunning line up of artists and take the opportunity to make a positive difference to lives of young people of refugee backgrounds!
