Secrets through a soundglass brings new contemporary classical music for string instruments to Western Sydney in 2018
Secrets through a soundglass raises the profile of Australian art music and composers. Five new works are currently being composed by composers Daniel Thorpe (South Australia), Felicity Wilcox (New South Wales), Peggy Polias (New South Wales), Catherine Golden (New South Wales) and Christina Green (Melbourne). A high quality premiere will be held on the 24th of February 2018 in Western Sydney. The Australian Art Quartet, Daniel Thorpe, Christina Green and Catherine Golden will perform on the night, bringing these wonderful musical works to life.
Rehearsals will take place between November 2017 and continue into February 2018 leading up to the world premiere on the 24th of February 2018. This event and any other potential concerts that feature the music throughout 2018 will help build a new audience in Western Sydney and The Blue Mountains.
Assistance from fellow musicians and donations from the general public is being sought to help cover costs (which includes recording engineer, administration, travel and marketing materials). In addition to covering the costs of music, production and venue hire, there is the potential of releasing a commercial CD.
