[Two of Australia's most adventurous classical musicians, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello), are performing their beautiful multimedia show, Where Song Began. Based on Tim Low's bestselling book, this performance tells the story of the evolution of the song, featuring music spanning 300 years, stunning visual projections and an immersive soundscape. The experience has been described as "like being sung to by the country".  this 50-minute performance explores the Australian origins of song, ‘the birds that can sing’. Such is their evolutionary significance, ‘one may ask whether human music would have reached the heights it has, had the first songbird not sung in an Australian rain forest.’
The performers: Simone Slattery was a 2018 Churchill Fellow, received a PhD in Music Performance from the University of Adelaide and performs regularly with Australia’s finest ensembles. Anthony Albrecht is an Australian graduate of The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program and enjoys an international career.
Performance length: 60 minutes without interval, including a Q&A

Doors will open at 7:30 pm for an 8:00 pm concert.
