Sacred Stage

The focus for Sacred Stage in 2018 is the composition and premiere of new vocal works connected to nature and to help those in need.

Jacqui was classically trained and has won Australian and Indonesian grants and awards for singing and composing. Highlights have included singing and composing for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, singing as a regular cantor at St. Patrick's cathedral, Melbourne (1999-2005), and speaking about vocal composition and improvisation as a conference delegate at the international conference Composition in the 21st Century in 2014 at TCD, Dublin, Ireland.

In 2018 Jacqui will be Composer in Residence at The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Ireland for two weeks, and new works will be premiered at Burrinja Cultural Centre, charity concerts for a shelter for women and children experiencing homelessness, and other concerts.
