Hastings Choristers has a tradition of participating in exciting musical ventures with Australian composers visiting Port Macquarie to conduct their cutting edge compositions. A virtual newcomer to our area, Harley Mead is a well-known young Australian composer who is Head of Performance at Towoomba Grammar School, and a much sought-after composer of accessible choral and instrumental music.

Harley composed a new work for SATB chorus, commissioned by Sydney Grammar Schools’ Preparatory campuses at St Ives and Edgecliff, which was premiered in this concert by the Edgecliff and St Ives campus choirs, Tacking Point Public School’s Bel Canto and our own Cantorus. It has the theme of multicultural Australia - people fleeing their homelands to make their home here UNDER ONE SKY, presented through choral and instrumental music.
