Alice Chance


2021 Composer-in-Residence

Alice Chance is a sought-after composer of music, words, and installations. Her works are performed in concert halls (Sydney Opera House, The Kennedy Centre, City Recital Hall Angel Place) and cathedrals (St Mary’s Cathedral Sydney, Stanford Memorial Church California, Trinity Church Wall St New York City.) But her music is also sung in auditoriums, paddocks and showers all around Australia. Alice’s large-scale song cycle, Fiat Lux | The Light Cycle was a finalist in the 2018 APRA Art Music Awards for Vocal/Choral work of the year. In 2019, a reimagining of the work was premiered by the Sydney Conservatorium Choir and Early Music Ensemble.

2019 also saw Alice bring her APRA award-nominated work Audience Choir, commissioned by Ensemble Offspring, to Sydney Festival in a performance at Casula Powerhouse. Alice has completed composition residencies in India and the USA, and has worked as composer-in-residence with Moorambilla Voices since 2013. She was awarded First Class Honours from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Alice's new piece will be premiered in August 2021. Check our 2021 program for details.
