Where Song Began - Music for Australia - San Francisco
Join us at the Noe Valley Ministry for a very special performance in aid of Australia's endangered wildlife. Devastating fires, unprecedented in scale, have brought many species to the brink of extinction. Where Song Began is an ode to Australia, in particular its incredible songbirds and the landscapes they inhabit.

50-minutes long, this work features live music on baroque instruments spanning 300 years (from Schmelzer to Arvo Pärt), visual projections of birds and their landscapes, as well as an immersive natural soundscape. It tells the story of the evolution of songbirds, and how they shaped the world.

Where Song Began has been performed over 60 times across Australia, as well as in New York and London. It has been hailed in the press as ...a work of art; a transfixing soundscape that embraces cultures and ages, the composed and the improvised, the indigenous and the stylised and which highlights the utterly unique birdsongs of Australia. 

Please see www.wheresongbegan.com for more information.
