Presented in association with Musica Viva Australia.

Using the human voice to tell the stories of our time and place through song.

AVÉ is an elite chamber ensemble that is warm and welcoming to all, consisting of artists of international excellence; Katie Noonan (Artistic Director and Soprano, QLD), Fiona Campbell (Mezzo Soprano, WA), Andrew Goodwin (Tenor, NSW) and Andrew O’Connor (Bass-Baritone, NSW). The ensemble presents vocal performances featuring new Australian works, featuring engagement with our First Nations People.

The ensemble, established in 2021, aims to make a mark on the national and international stage, telling unique stories and celebrating identity and place through song. Exploring the extraordinary vocal music from the late Renaissance and Baroque era alongside New Australian works, AVÉ is creating a national standard in the presentation of professional chamber vocal works.

"The audience was thrilled to hear the wonderful purity, expression and instrumental beauty of these stellar vocalists, tonight delivering and championing new, truly Australian music."
