'British Isles to the Australian Bush'

Thu 11 Apr 2019
$30 Adults, $20 Concession, U12 free
Parking Available, Toilet on Site, Disabled Facilities
Event will continue in wet weather
Join The Muses’ Delight on a musical journey from the British Isles of the 18th Century to the raucous Australian bush. Two themes arise: dance, and the transformation of British folk and classical music as it finds a home in the sun, bush and sea of Australia. Through this playfully constructed program we visit Handel and Purcell in the English Court, then head downtown to the reels and jigs of the tavern. Ross Edwards’ Ecstatic Dances paint a vivid image of the unique birdsong of Australia before whirling into the bush dances that filled the nights of Katie Kurtz, Australian fiddler and great-grandmother of The Muses’ Delight’s very own cellist, Lucy Price!

The Muses’ Delight is a period instrument trio based in Melbourne, made up of flautist Meredith Beardmore, violist Katie Yap and cellist Lucy Price. We are passionate about presenting concerts that tell stories through the historically informed performance of 18th century art and folk music. This concert is a part of our NSW and VIC April tour.

Accessible for all ages. Tickets and more information available at the website link.
