In recognition of National Reconciliation Week 2020 (May 27 – June 3), the ASO invited Barkindji Songwoman Nancy Bates and composer Julian Ferraretto to collaborate and arrange Nancy’s song “Ruby” for ASO musicians.
The ASO acknowledges that we meet and work on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs, relationship with the land, and the songlines that tell the creation of our great country. We acknowledge that the oldest living culture is with us today.
Program to include
- Nancy Bates "Ruby" arr. Nancy Bates and Julian Ferraretto
