Theme Music "The Song Of Us"
Local composer Natasha Pearson created "The Song Of Us" for Ensemble Goldentree earlier this year. The piece was premiered by Susan, Alison and Megan Stellar for the 2016 Ensemble Goldentree series launch in February.
The premiere was held in the week of International Women’s Day and celebrated the contributions made to chamber music by women. With Megan busy pursuing a career in music journalism, Alison McIntosh-Deszcz and Susan drafted Pianist Natasha Lin for the recording of the podcast theme.
