Event Details

“It is simultaneously quite serious, quite moving and absolutely hilarious.” - James Morrison

“A fascinating and artistically absorbing musico-political event” - Limelight Magazine

Prime Ministerial speeches set to music. Queensland’s Topology and The Australian Voices bring iconic speeches and exceptional musicianship together to celebrate pivotal moments in Australian history.

Composed by Topology’s masterminds Robert Davidson and John Babbage, plus musical powerhouse Gordon Hamilton, the performance traverses pivotal moments that have shaped our nation. ‘The Singing Politician’ takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths - from Robert Menzies to Gough Whitlam, Malcolm Fraser to Paul Keating, Bob Hawke to Tony Abbott – and marries them seamlessly to an overlay of stirring music and choral work.

**Early Bird Tickets: $20 (available till 18 September only)**
