Welcome to our second Festival Concert. I hope you've all been enjoying Sydney Festival so far. I'd like firstly to acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of our land, and to pay my respects to their Elders. I also acknowledge the people of 200 nations who live in our city.
And indeed Lieven Bertels has put together a festival that is as diverse, energetic and multicultural as Sydney itself.
Tonight, three fabulous women will honour the lives and music of some amazing female musicians - people like Billie Holiday, Odetta and Miriam Makeba.
It's passionate, and from the heart. And it's going to be an amazing evening.
So have a great night, everyone, and see you around the festival!
