For the 2014 Gondwana Choirs National Choral School in Sydney, Melbourne composer Lisa Young was commissioned as Composer in Residence to write a massed choir piece for all the Gondwana choirs to perform. The piece incorporates 'konnakol' the South Indian rhythmic vocal language, which is a sophisticated style of vocal percussion. It was premiered as the finale in the concert The Concourse, Chatswood, Australia on Saturday January 18th, 2014.

This video has been shot at the general rehearsal. The Saturday concerts were the culmination of two weeks of workshops in choral singing, conducting and composing, attended by hundreds of young musicians aged 10-25, drawn from around Australia.
