“Maiden Voyage” – An Australian song cycle - presented by Lorraine Milne
Lorraine Milne took an audience of 30 members on a journey of the development of Australia through the eyes of ordinary and outstanding women in a cycle of 13 songs, the lyrics written by Lorraine and supported by her own compositions.
Beginning with the First Fleet, through wars, emancipation, Liberation and political achievements she wove a pattern of independence and resilience that resonates today with the freedoms available to all Australians but still with all the indignities and restrictions that face our women.
