    Presenting the WORLD PREMIERE of  Regermination: Songs of Solace and Renewal in the Australian Landscape. Music by Alisha Redmond and lyrics by Grazia Marin.

    Sneak preview at

    Regermination is a joyful and cathartic dedication to the boundless landscapes and iconic birdlife of Australia where audiences can bathe their ears in a set of lush new works. Six glorious contemporary art songs and a solo piano piece celebrate the deep connection to nature and the restorative, consoling effect it has on the troubled mind.
    Conceived in isolation, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the music seeks to find a remedy for loneliness through mindful observation of the natural world around us. It is Ensemble Volante’s intention to take the listener on a journey where they can find solace, calm, and most of all, heartfelt hope for the future within a turbulent, ever-changing world.
    “I want to write music that is like an old friend: in which you can always rely on for reassurance, companionship, and peace of mind.” – Alisha Redmond
