Heartland is an academic overture for orchestra composed and conducted by Assoc Prof Richard Chew, Director of the Arts Academy at Federation University.

Featuring a professional chamber orchestra led by internationally acclaimed violinist Dunja Lavrova, the work has been commissioned in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the University in 2020. The principal musical theme is taken up by the uilleann pipes, played in this recording by Nicholas Martin.

Heartland is a celebration of a moment in time, between the achievement of graduation and the possibilities that lie before you.
