Astra concerts bring together voices and instruments in the crosswinds of contemporary music-making – among the varied faces of the present and the past, in the front and backwaters of the familiar and the little-known. The 2019 concert season resounds with impulses from all directions, of differing geographies and histories, from choral polyphony to instrumental improvisation and from meditative compositions to early electronics.

New works from Australia and other countries are heard in their premiere performances, with a rich context of sonic resources surrounding the work of The Astra Choir.
