Dual ARIA Award winning pianist and composer Sally Whitwell has been appointed Musical Director for Sydney-based chamber choir, Coro Innominata.
Whilst Sally is best known for her interpretations of minimalist composers Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, she has long maintained a presence in the choral music scene working for many years with Gondwana Choirs as an accompanist and educator. She also composes regularly for choirs, her most recent commission being a massed choral work for The Arts Unit of the Department of Education to be premiered in mid 2016. In November, she presented workshops at the International Federation for Choral Music’s World Choral Expo 2015 in Macau. Then in December, her new Christmas musical Cog in the Machine commissioned by Sydney Philharmonia Choir’s youth ensemble VOX was premiered.
