Hailed by The Australian as “a rare talent with a voice of extraordinary beauty and versatility”, singer-songwriter Katie Noonan joins Aurora Orchestra as special guest for an eclectic journey in the sublime company of Aaron Copland, John Adams, and Samuel Barber. From the vibrantly surreal palette of John Adams’ cartoon-inspired Chamber Symphony to Copland’s vision of rural Appalachia, Aurora’s Road Trip also features newly commissioned folk songs by Nico Muhly and original tracks by Katie Noonan.
