In its debut series, Contra Concerts in association with Southern Cross Soloists presents three intimate chamber recitals, housed in the resplendent heritage-listed halls of Brisbane’s Holy Trinity Church in Fortitude Valley, Toowoomba’s St Luke’s Church and the Old Hall of Toowoomba Grammar School. To attend a Contra Concert permits you an hour to switch off, recharge and disconnect from deadline mode. Rebel against your smartphone and dare to get nothing done! We invite you to sit back, let your mind wander and share in the rare exchange of music between performers and audience, only achievable in the intimacy of the chamber music salon .
About this concert:
In a recital of tranquil dreams, pastoral scenes and fragmented recollections, the sumptuous combination of flute, viola and harp unites three exciting, young soloists – Emily Granger, Jonathan Henderson and James Wannan. Featuring a special commissioned work by Sydney-based composer Tristan Coelho, the intriguing addition of live electronics expands the scope of this unique instrumental combination, awakening us from a fantasy dreamscape into a digital reality.
