The Sunrise Project

Local community member Mary McArthur joined with her colleagues at the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Chorus to create The Sunrise Project. This wonderful video features the ‘The Ground’ by Ola Gjeilo.

Mary filmed her singing part here in Battery Point in much the same way as shown in the Extraordinary Times story ‘Virtual Singing‘, and then in a variety of locations around Southern Tasmania. The talented people at Chorus then put all the parts together into the video.

David Lawrence, renowned choral conductor in London, said,

“If you watch one more choir video from now until the end of time, may I recommend this to be the one. The Tasmanian Symphony Chorus Sunrise Project captures them singing ‘The Ground’ by Ola Gjeilo in some of the most extraordinary beautiful locations of this incredible island. It sounds, looks, and quite simply IS beautiful. The views of Port Arthur are breathtaking. June Tyzack you have completely reset the bar! Huge congratulations to you and to each of your very blessed singers.”
