Sunday 7th July at 4pm, Llewellyn Hall, the Song Company (with other performers) presents a new work called Howls of the House.

Written by Canberra artists, Hal Judge and Tim Hansen, the cantata Howls of the House takes a satirical look at life in Parliament House – both chambers as well as the corridors, the estimate rooms and the offices;  a city within a city. The piece draws inspiration from both the solemn and serious moments of our parliamentary history as well as the daily spectacle of our political circus.

The librettist’s first go at libretting, I believe.
