Special Zoom Event with Leigh Hay

Writing a Libretto: Poetry on the origins of the universe

Date: Wednesday 5 June 2024
Time: 7:30 pm
Price: $20.00

In July 2023, the Heidelberg Choral Society premiered a new work titled Origins: Of the Universe, of life, of species, of humanity, co written by poet Leigh Hay and Professor Jenny Graves.

Jenny’s dream had always been to write a secular choral work about the origins of the universe, and as Leigh had previously written a choral libretto, Jenny invited her to co-write Origins. The subsequent libretto was the coming together of science and poetry, and with music composed and orchestrated by Nicholas Buc, Origins premiered to a sell-out audience at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

In this Zoom presentation, Leigh talks about keys to and the process of libretto writing and co-working in partnership with a scientist, composer and conductor.

Leigh is a SWWV member, free-lance writer and editor. She is also a published author and poet and has sung with choirs for most of her life.
