Sarah Hopkins is a unique Australian composer-performer, highly acclaimed for her visionary music and inspiring performances for cello, harmonic overtone singing, handbells, choir and the celestial Harmonic Whirlies of her own creation.

With a strong background and training in classical music, over the years she has moved into the realm of holistic music and developed a very distinctive compositional voice. Her solo, ensemble, choral and orchestral compositions demonstrate an expansive and pure musical style which resonates with the space and energy of the Australian landscape as well as the inner landscape of the human psyche.

Hopkins’ most well known works are Past Life Melodies for a cappella choir, Honour the Earth as your Mother for choir, orchestra & didgeridoo, & Reclaiming the Spirit for ensemble with harmonic whirly. Past Life Melodies is currently the most performed Australian choral piece in the USA & has become a standard repertoire piece for many choirs around the world. Past Life Melodies & Honour the Earth as your Mother were performed at the Woodford Folk Festivals (Qld) in 2004 & 2006 to audiences of over 30,000 people.

In 2003 & 2005 Hopkins was commissioned by the Queensland Music Festival to compose two 30 minute works for choir & orchestra: Childers Shining (2003) & Childers Shining: One World (2005). Both productions received standing ovations from the entire audience. Hopkins has since been honoured by having a new rural housing estate near Childers named after her composition Childers Shining.
