Katy Abbott

The music of Katy Abbott (1971) leads the listener through a narrative of sound, exploring concepts of home, place, connection and human nature, frequently exhibiting a cheeky humour and cleverly juxtaposing contemporary flavours on traditional settings. 

Abbott’s compositions have been performed, published and recorded around the world, brought to life by many of leading Australian chamber ensembles including HalcyonThe Song Company, Syzygy EnsembleFlinders Quartet and Sydney, Adelaide, Tasmanian and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras. Her works have been performed in UK, Europe, Asia and the USA and featured in many Australian and International music festivals.
