CALLING VOLUNTEER TEENAGE BRASS MUSICIANS & VOCALISTS WHO ARE:

  • Passionate about climate action
  • Passionate about art and music

Part concert, part performance, part teenage takeover SERIOUS NOISE (working title) channels the hope, rage and urgency fuelling the School Strike for Climate movement.

Composed by Cat Hope and directed by Adena Jacobs, the project is inspired and informed by an ongoing series of conversations with teenagers active in the Australian climate strike movement, shaping a new work for teenage choir and orchestra that will be both a call to arms and a prayer for the future.

This is a call-out to singers and musicians to join us in creating this new work of artistic protest. Instruments we are looking for are:

  • Sousaphones
  • Bass Trombones
  • Tubas
  • Euphoniums
