The Public Lamentation for Peace

Community Event

13 Sep 2019

Alice Springs’ locals and visitors are invited to take part in ‘The Public Lamentation for Peace’-a free musical event from the diverse and colourful 2019 Desert Song Festival program.

Join this gentle staging of a creative vigil for peace. Focusing on creating love, peace and a welcome for refugees from war-torn places, this simple gathering is a small contribution towards a more harmonious and humane society.

Choirs will perform peaceful soliloquies accompanied by readings of poetry and prose atop ANZAC Hill, with the dramatic MacDonnell Ranges as a back drop.

Be a part of this special community event and marvel at the beauty of the landscape, as the sun sets for another evening of Desert Song Festival passion.

The 2019 Desert Song Festival unites singers, musicians and audiences, from Alice Springs and visitors to the region. Over 10 glorious days (September 6- 15), watch artists from this vibrant, multi-cultural community, come together to present a diverse program of events, that reveal incredible musical talent.

Using staged, iconic heritage venues in town and the majestic, ancient landscapes of Central Australia as a backdrop, the festival gives visitors an unforgettable experience.
