Setting the words of the uniquely Australian poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal to music, Katie Noonan has commissioned ten stellar Australian contemporary composers to create a song cycle based on Oodgeroo’s poetry, to be performed with the brilliant Australian String Quartet (ASQ).
The Glad Tomorrow project brings together 4 distinct worlds — Contemporary Australian and Queensland Composers, the searing poetry of Queenslander Oodgeroo Noonuccal, ASQ and Katie Noonan’s unique voice and innate musicality.
Such a unique combination of creative powerhouses will result in a spectacular and spine tingling performance.

“My hope is that this project will help a new generation discover the powerful words and the extraordinary life of Oodgeroo Noonuccal.” Katie Noonan
