Andrew Barr has announced the lineup for this year’s Voices in the Forest at the Arboretum:

This year’s concert features performances by Sumi Jo, a Korean soprano, and Stuart Skelton, an Australian-born tenor. The Royal Military College Band, the Voices in the Forest Orchestra, and choirs and soloists from schools and colleges across the ACT will also perform.

Over 3,000 people attended the concert last year. It was great to see so many Canberrans supporting such a wonderful event, and I encourage everyone to do the same this year.

This event would not be possible without the support of the Village Building Company, which committed $1 million to the construction of the Visitors’ Centre and a further $50,000 a year for 10 years to support the annual staging of major events such as Voices of the Forest.

If of course she turns up… Sumi Jo is notorious for ducking out of engagements.

Fortunately she isn’t engaged by the ANU… who would have sacked her and then asked her to apply for the concert position.
