Work Overview

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine for string orchestra features Australian nature sounds to create a soothing, peaceful and uplifting sound world.

This piece refers to the delicate white snowdrop flower that symbolises hope, optimism, courage and new beginnings for people who are facing a challenging situation.

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine was composed for the 2018 Hush Hospital Foundation CD and selected for the Australian Chamber Orchestra's 2019 worldwide playlist celebrating "Incredible Female Artists", ABC's "Best of Australian Classical Music", and re-released on ABC Classic's "2021 Women of Note" Vol. 3 album.

Like Snowdrops You Will Shine is the 2022 new theme tune for ABC's Classic Breakfast daily program and a Queensland Mental Health online course.

Opening with a delicate and playful 'snowdrop' pizzicato motif bouncing around the ensemble, shining melodic colours and thick, warm chordal harmonies create an uplifting and positive ambiance. Soothing seagull harmonic glissando sounds enhance a calm and meditative atmosphere.
