This weekend a special concert will help raise fund to support the cyclone devastated East Timor.
The concert entitled, Charisma: Celebrating The Creativity Of Women, will celebrate the creativity of women both in art and life. The programme is filled with an eclectic an eclectic mix of performers, who are predominantly Australian women composers. During the concert a new version of Australian born Scottish resident Jane Stanley’s pieces Limn for bass clarinet and piano and Faery Cup also for bass clarinet will be performed. Nicole Murphy’s work Exchange will then compliment these works. There are descriptive pieces alluding to myths and legends and the seasons by Mirrie Hill, Katy Abbott and Miriam Hyde.
Also on the bill is Amanda Handel’s Kanimbla Moon as well as a touch of the blues from American composer Libby Larsen and a crazy Tarantella by Gwyneth Walker.
When the concert series was first envisioned with was simply a celebrate of women but as the planning commenced and the devastating cyclone ravaged East Timor the team behind the event couldn’t help but see this as their way to help.
Al proceeds from these two concerts will be donated to East Timor’s flood relief.
