Australian Horizons - Songs from the Bush to the Beach.
Enjoy a panorama of iconic ballads, standards from the Australian choral repertoire and the World Premiere performance of More Than Just A Home, written by local musician and actor, Yoris Wilson.
Director/MC Terry Annesley introduces works from national composers, other Territorians Ted Egan, Sara Storer, Kathy Mills and Nora Lewis and guest artists bush band Murphy & Friends along with country singer Jackie Izod.
