With humongous thanks to Creative Victoria and the Australia Council for the Arts, excellent colleagues Tilman Robinson and Chloë Sobek (Outlier) and I have been working on a collaborative piece that we’re debuting in my home town at the stunning Theatre Royal, and at the Melbourne Recital Centre this March.
If experimental renaissance instruments with electronics is your thing, you should check it out!
It’s so excellent being back home in Central Victoria, and even more excellent to be performing Purcell’s stunning Dido and Aeneas with local ensemble, the Gisborne Singers, under the baton of the inimitable Luke Severn, in the gorgeous Bluestone Theatre, Kyneton.
Tickets are selling like hotcakes, so get in fast to ensure you don’t miss out! Details and bookings here.
In this FREE concert directed by Stephen Grant, I’ll be leading an ensemble with soloists from the Early Voices of Melbourne University, in a concert featuring music by the great English composer Henry Purcell, including the Ode for St Cecilia’s Day entitled ‘Welcome to all the Pleasures’.
UPDATE: Here we go again… It is with the deepest regret that we announce the cancellation of our upcoming Chelys Germanica concert in Beechworth on Sunday 6th June. We were so looking forward to getting back on stage, but with the uncertainty over the length of the current lockdown, it is impossible to proceed. We hope to reschedule for a later date, and will keep you posted. In the meantime, take care Victoria xxxxx
As concerts slowly start to pick up, Harken Well heads back to beautiful Beechworth for a wintry programme of German Baroque music this June. Join us in the glorious Beechworth Town Hall for works by Schmelzer, Rosenmüller, and Froberger, among others!
