In this Brisbane exclusive, one-night-only concert, they will be joined by some of Brisbane's best professional music theatre voices – Marika Aubrey, Madeline Cain, Andrew Conaghan, Angela Harding, Tod Strike and Luke Kennedy.

Georgia Stitt’s work includes musicals Big Red Sun, Hello! My Baby, a “new-fashioned” musical written with Emmy Award winner Cheri Steinkellner using the Tin Pan Alley catalogue of great American songs and The Water(winner of the 2008 ANMT Search for New Voices in American Musical Theatre). Georgia’s non-theatrical compositions include several choral pieces, with hope and virtue, using text from President Obama's 2009 inauguration speech and she contributed songs to the American Music Festival in Tono, Japan.
