Part-concert, part-documentary, Griffyn has been busy working with the CSIRO to develop a musical appreciation of the science of trees!
Join us as we showcase the world premiere of Griffyn director Michael Sollis’ City of Trees Suite, commissioned for the Canberra Centenary’s City of Trees Radio Plays as an exploration and impression of Canberra’s iconic treescapes (you can find out more http://www.canberra100.com.au/programs/city-of-trees/).
There will be music by Aussie compatriots Martin Wesley Smith (hear all about our Caterpillar of Society!) and Cold Chisel. We’ll be featuring garden music from Chile by Juan Orrego-Salas, and hearing the tremors of San Andreas faultline with music by American composer Ursula Mamlok.
You’ll also hear our clarinettist Matt O’Keeffe’s dazzling solo performance in combination with sounds of bugs and beetles as we continue our Swedish musical exchange with Australian premieres by Henrik Strindberg, Jenny Hettne, and Frederik Högberg following our acclaimed Water Into Swïne Festival!
We’ve also been working with local artist Annika Romeyn to develop an illustrative guide to our program – you check some of her beautiful work at http://annika-romeyn.com/. Everyone will take home a specially prepared illustrated concert guide as part of the concert!
Don’t miss out! Tickets start from only $10
