Arts & Public Life Breakfasts ‘Sing the discord, cheer the underdog’

Arts & Public Life Breakfasts ‘Sing the discord, cheer the underdog’

Lyndon Terracini, Artistic Director of Opera Australia 2009
His title is taken from a letter by J.F Archibald to A.B. (Banjo) Paterson, on which he was reflecting at the time of his appointment to Opera Australia: ‘Australia is a big place and I want you to write the stuff that will appeal not only to Sydney people but that will be of interest to the pearler up on Thursday Island and the farmer down in Victoria. In all public issues the press are apt to sing in chorus. But if you go to a concert you may hear a man sing in discord…and that discord catches the ear over the voices of the chorus. ...Well, don't be afraid to sing the discord...do not be afraid to cheer for the underdog.’
