Composer Chloe Knibbs shines a spotlight on the multifaceted collaboration that's come from the Adopt a Composer project with choir, Ex Urbe.

On one post-it note were the words, “modesty and self-deprecation like a cloud – split apart by direct rays of sunshine”, which was a beautiful response and came from Di, who in addition to singing with Ex Urbe is also a poet.
