Bach To Bush

Bach To Bush


Bach To Bush saw virtuoso cellist Louise King, accompanied by percussionist John Morrison, swing through western Queensland visiting Boonah, Goondiwindi, Cunnamulla, Quilpie, Bedourie, Charleville, Barcaldine, Longreach and Warwick.

Featuring music from Bach to blues, the program included a diverse collection of sounds from around the world, exploring baroque masters to fiery flamenco and traditional Irish grooves.

King took audiences on a musical journey from the Middle East to Appalachian country. A number of shows also included local community choirs joining King and Morrison onstage.

Both experienced educators, King and Morrison delivered a tailored workshop or masterclass in each town, sharing their talent with local schools and musicians.

Bach To Bush was presented by Queensland Music Festival.
