The 2021 AMEB Online Orchestra’s performance of ‘Morning Star and Evening Star’ was revealed on November 3 at a ceremony on the Gold Coast.
Performers from all over Australia and beyond played their part and contributed their talent and enthusiasm to AMEB’s biennial community orchestra project.
Written by Candace Kruger, Lann Levinge and Isobella Kruger, ‘Morning Star and Evening Star’ is a song based on a Yugambeh lullaby which was handed down through generations of Aboriginal families in the Yugambeh language region.
We are so proud to present this performance to the world!

We’re excited to tell you that the 2021 AMEB Online Orchestra performance is ready to launch!
Participants have downloaded their scores, practised hard, recorded their videos and sent them to us at AMEB. Now it’s time for the final BIG video reveal, showcasing the orchestra’s performance of the new song, Morning Star and Evening Star.
We’ll be holding a special launch event in Southport on the Gold Coast. Our MC is Candace Kruger, a Yugambeh yarrabilgingun (songwoman) and co-songwriter of Morning Star and Evening Star. The event will commence with a smoking ceremony and will include some live performances by the Yugambeh Youth Choir, the QAHS Academy Strings and didgeridoo artists Mark Williams and Ethan Nihôt.
Elders from the Yugambeh language region will be present, sharing their cultural heritage and connection to the Morning Star and Evening Star narrative featured in the song.
Join us for a unique celebration of music, culture and performing arts via our Facebook Live event!
