As a self-directed ensemble, the singers collaborate as chamber musicians in forging a fresh and unique approach to diverse styles of music, ranging from the early Renaissance to the present day, with a particular interest in new Australian works.
Since its formation in 2014, the ensemble has maintained a series of self-presented concerts as well as specialised projects such as the popular Brewed Ballads series. Sydney Antiphony is a keen collaborator in a variety of artistic projects including commissions,workshops and recordings; previous partners in collaboration include Alaska Projects, Performance Space and Sydney Chamber Opera.
Sydney Antiphony is an entirely self-funded project and its artists remain committed to enriching the musical landscape of Australia.
