The company of songs enters the administration


"We are focusing on trying to find a positive result for the situation and we are treating this as an opportunity not only to give a new perspective to life, but also a new force of intent for The Song Company", said the British Pitts, who took the helm in 2016 after Roland Peelman's twenty-year term.

"To this end, we invite those who have the necessary ability, vision and passion to support our culturally unique and vital work throughout the country to be in touch and see how they could help.

"In the meantime, I can only say that I am very proud of what we as a company have achieved in the last three and a half years, not to mention the last three and a half decades.

"I came to this country with my family to give my best in the vocal and choral world and I never stopped being happy and inspired by our work. The human voice is capable of the most extraordinary beauty and emotion and The Song Company is the only professional full-time vocal ensemble dedicated to giving a voice, literally, to and for Australia. "

Since its foundation, the company has built an enviable reputation for musical excellence and also for a vast repertoire, ranging from early music to contemporary work.

Pitts confirmed that the performances of the ensemble at the weekend, combining the music of Notre Dame with that of the now promising electric bass duo of Melbourne The Omnific, would still go ahead.

"Both musical worlds have exceptional appeal and irresistible strangeness," Pitts said. "Putting them together is the kind of innovative creative practice that The Song Company has excelled in doing for almost 35 years, and I hope very much, for a long time to come."
