Queensland Remembers

Raise your voice

Voices of Remembrance was a moving musical tribute to the end of the First World War, proudly delivered by the Queensland Government in partnership with Queensland Music Festival (QMF) to commemorate the Armistice Centenary.


Katie Noonan and Teddy Tahu RhodesAward winning songstress Katie Noonan and renowned New Zealand baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes took audiences in Toowoomba and Cairns on an incredible musical journey—through a poignant collection of iconic songs that reflected on the First World War experience and current impressions of the Anzac legacy.

Directed by Daniel Evans and under the musical and choral direction of Dr Jonathon Welch AM, Voices of Remembrance featured many iconic melodies and modern favourites—some triumphant, others contemplative, but all in honour of our past and present servicemen and women.

The talented leads were supported by a specially-formed choir of more than 150 local singers.

A highlight of the evening was the world premiere of a new piece by composer Gordon Hamilton. Called Eleven, the piece was inspired by our First World War troops and the complicated emotions they must have felt following the Armistice and on their return journey to Australia.

Community performances

Many community choirs around Queensland also learned the Voices of Remembrance repertoire, and performed to support local Remembrance Day and Armistice Centenary ceremonies, events and activities.
