Homophonic! The RESPECT Project

Singing our stories, loud and proud

Works for voices and strings inspired by intergenerational conversations between queer Victorian composers and seniors. This is emotional, powerful storytelling; maintaining our shared cultural queer history through music, humour, and a healthy dose of shared outrage.

Performed by Miranda Hill, The Consort of Melbourne, and the Homophonic! String Quintet.
