St Jude's - The Book...

Two years ago Pan Macmillan approached St Jude's founder Gemma Sisia to write a book about her life, including the dramas of moving to Tanzania and setting up the school.

She initially rejected the approach due to time constraints, but the book has now been written by a ghost writer, Sophe Lance, from Sydney, and it includes over 70 pictures.

The book is released on April 1st, and Gemma is coming back to Australia for a book tour in April and May. Pan Macmillan have offered to help to co-ordinate a "Friends of St Jude's night" in each of the major capital cities.

If anyone's interested in helping to organise a Friends of St Jude's dinner in Sydney, contact Gemma at the email address below and she'll put you in touch with the people at Pan Macmillan.

Gemma's tour dates are as follows:
Sydney - Tuesday 24th April
Brisbane - Thursday 26th April
Melbourne - Monday 30th April
Adelaide - Tuesday 1st May
Perth - Thursday 3rd May

The Tallis Scholars Australian Tour

Alexander Productions and Sekers Group present the Australian Tour of The Tallis Scholars

Internationally recognised as the finest renaissance choral group, The Tallis Scholars are bringing to Australia a musical experience not to be missed. Directed by Peter Phillips, the Tallis Scholars' anticipated return to Australia guarantees audiences the famous renaissance sounds already known to transcend all standards of purity and clarity of sound.

Their sixth Australian tour involves performances at prestigious locations in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney.

Australian audiences will be drawn to two contrasting concert programmes including music by Tallis, Taverner, Gombert, Palestrina and Lassus, as well as the most famous of all Renaissance works, Allegri's Miserere.

Two additional concerts in Melbourne and Sydney will star local groups - The Choir of Trinity College Melbourne and the Sydney Chamber Choir - alongside the Tallis Scholars in performances of the rarely heard 40-part motel by Thomas Tallis, Spem in Allum, written circa 1570.

The Tallis Scholars will be performing at the City Recital Hall, Angel Place, on 10th February 2007.
