In Koort Boodja (Heartland) we celebrate Country, its First Peoples and the diverse cultures who call it home.

Accompanied by the West Coast Philharmonic Orchestra and led by conductor Samuel Parry, Noongar singer Natasha Eldridge will perform two original songs and much-loved favourite I Am Australian. Iain Grandage’s Left Edge and Lachlan Skipworth’s Hinterland will depict the sheer beauty of our local oceans and landscapes respectively, along with guest oboist Alexandra Allan in Graeme Koehne’s breathtaking Way Out West. The West Coast Philharmonic Chorus will perform an inspiring song recounting the history of Pemulwuy, and Ruth McCall’s captivating arrangement of Waltzing Matilda.

The concert will bring to life Christopher Tin’s Grammy award-winning Calling All Dawns. Featuring a swathe of guest artists, this monumental song cycle in 12 languages depicting life (day), death (night) and rebirth (dawn) is sure to resonate with the rich cultural diversity within our community.
