29 Nov 2020 Once Only Event
Arafura Music Collective presents Times of Change, a stunning affirmation of the power and relevance of musical creativity in times of uncertainty, chaos, and change.
Like a conversation between friends, Times of Change is the perfect formula for reflection after the challenging year we have all lived through. Drawing from the subject of climate change following the catastrophic bushfires of early 2020, Times of Change was postponed due to the impact of the global pandemic. Now, this relevant performance will resonate with anyone affected by the current global climate.
This stunning evening of chamber music will leave you buoyant and inspired as you experience wonderful contrasting music styles with compositions spanning continents and eras. From Cambini’s French Revolution terror, to the passionate jazz and tango inspired ‘Spring’ music of Piazzolla, contemporary works by living Australian composers Crevici, Alice Chance and Richard Charlton, to the anthemic finale of praise to Mother Earth from John Rutter.
Arafura Music Collective is a community of the Northern Territory’s premiere chamber musicians. The Collective is animated by the love of chamber music playing and performing, and the belief that creativity connects communities. The Collective contributes to the unique cultural life of the Territory community, performing music from all musical eras, cultures, and genres, inviting audiences into relevant, unique, and enriching experiences of the intimacy of chamber music.
