An immersive world of wonder

Take a plunge into the deepest blue to discover churning St George’s Cathedral Consort waves, eerie calm and some of the greatest wonders of music of the sea.

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, John Luther Adams’ expansive orchestral work Become Ocean is an intimate sonic journey, a musical meditation on the mysterious tides of existence. Britten’s evocative Four Sea Interludes and a world premiere from West Australian composer Olivia Davies complete this immersive program.
