Love and fury - what every life should have in abundance
For only one night, Katie Noonan will be performing with the Brodsky Quartet in what promises to be an original and wonderful programme of Judith Wright's poetry set to music.

The life of Judith Wright has always captivated me, ever since I discovered the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Art. I was curious about this woman, who gave her name to such an exciting and innovative venue.

I had the opportunity to read about her, but also attend events, when the 100th anniversary of her birth was celebrated last year. She is a very special Brisbane born woman who wrote beautifully and engagingly, but she also spent a lot of her energy defending Aboriginal rights to land and being the co founder of Queensland Wildlife Preservation Society, which is still going today and which does such valuable work. She is probably one of Brisbane's best loved authors and social activists.

This event came about as there was a desire by a number of composers to compose music for Judith Wright's poetry. Katie Noonan and the Brodsky Quartet will perform just that and bring it altogether in this one performance on Thursday the 28th of April 2016. It is entitled "Love and Fury" because that is the way that Judith used to sign her letters. So much love but also fury at the injustices she saw perpetrated during her lifetime.

So if you are a fan of Judith Wright like I am, you will not want to miss this event.

Oh yes I'm a Judith Wright fan...a woman ahead of her time on so many issues! I always used her poems in my classroom programs. Whenever I see a magpie, I think of her poem...'Along the road the magpies walk, with hands in pockets left and right...'
