THE SOUNDS OF THE SILK ROAD BROUGHT TO LIFE WITH NEW MUSIC
Southern Cross Soloists invited audiences to take a musical journey along the ancient Silk Road. A collaboration combining the skills of Queensland’s leading professional musicians and students from MacGregor High School and The University of Queensland, Journey Along the Silk Road featured a series of workshops culminating in a concert of fresh new compositions reflecting the dynamic cultural exchanges and human connectedness that were a feature of this famed route.
In a hybrid program that mixed world music with classical chamber music, audiences were taken on a mini ‘Silk Road’ journey that highlighted the importance and influence of cultural exchange both in the past and today.
Journey Along the Silk Road was presented by Queensland Music Festival, Brisbane City Council, Southern Cross Soloists and The University Of Queensland School Of Music.
