Jake Runestad’s world premiere piece for the 2018 Sydney Opera House Choir Festival led by Craig Hella Johnson

Greetings Friends

As you probably know, I am very enthusiastic about conducting my first festival down under in the Sydney Opera House in July 2018. Having Jake Runestad agree to write a world premiere piece for us for this breathtaking venue adds to the excitement.

This is my invitation to you and your singers to join us in Australia. Full choirs are very welcome and have options for individual concerts in addition to the opportunity for their own cameo performance on the stage of the magnificent Sydney Opera House Concert Hall Stage. Smaller groups of singers will equally love the combined elements of this festival over the four festival days in Sydney. Rehearsals, sectionals, sightseeing (sailing the Harbor and seeing the kangaroos/koalas), meeting locals, optional individual concerts, the Dress Rehearsal (as we take over the venue for the day) and finally the gala concert in the hallowed halls of one of the world’s iconic halls are some of what we will be doing.

Please feel free to be back in touch with me via this email address or directly with for further details.

We have had so much fun at the previous KI festivals that we know this will be another exceptional opportunity for you and your singing community.
See you ‘down under’

Craig Hella Johnson
Artistic Director & Conductor
