Where Song Began

Concert or Performance

22 Aug 2019

Two of Australia’s most adventurous classical musicians, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello), are performing their beautiful multimedia show Where Song Began in Canberra and Yass. Based on Tim Low’s bestselling book, this performance tells the story of the evolution of song, featuring music spanning 300 years, stunning visual projections and an immersive soundscape. The experience has been described as “like being sung to by the country”.

Performances on the 22nd and 23rd of August as part of an ongoing tour of over 50 concerts around regional Australia.
