A WELCOMING SAFE HAVEN BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH MUSIC
Music can evoke a sense of sanctuary, calm and belonging. As millions of people worldwide are currently searching for refuge, Sanctuary is a timely musical event.
Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will perform a beautifully curated program that explores the themes of sanctuary: our universal need for a safe haven in a troubled world.
In a world premiere event, the program will feature a concerto by revered pianist and unique composer – and second generation Australian immigrant – Joe Chindamo, commissioned for the wife and husband team of oboist Diana Doherty and cor-anglais player Alexandre Oguey.
The concert will also include a world premiere arrangement of Elvis Costello’s haunting war song Favourite Hour by the Brodsky Quartet’s Paul Cassidy.
