Sheppard, Elizabeth (b?)

Elizabeth Sheppard

born: ?
country: Australia

Elizabeth Sheppard’s music combines ancient Noongar Aboriginal musical traditions with contemporary themes, using expressive, culturally infused motifs and textures. Through this fusion of old and new, she strengthens ties to country and kin, and educates community groups. Her extended family, dispersed across Australia, keep music, story and gardening traditions alive, that connect them to the ancient songlines that crisscross Australia. Elizabeth also explores contemporary and historical Australian cultural, governance and religious scenarios in her music. Her Kooranginy Suite on invasion, mourning and the hope of peace through truth telling, was premiered by Ensemble Offspring in November 2017. In 2018 Ensemble Offspring and Dharawal soprano Sonya Holowell performed her pieces Kaya Mary, Warangka Makialo, Wonthaggi and Burradowi in at the Eugene Goossens Hall, Sydney. Elizabeth recently completed a commissioned piano work for the brilliant Mexican pianist Irma Enriquez, and is currently recording her collection of ten new Australian Carols. She will commence Master of Music at the Australian National University in 2020.
