Amarcord in Australia
Amarcord has arrived in Australia! The ensemble is currently preparing for an exclusive Soiree at a private residence in Perth where they will perform a special program to help raise funds for Musica Viva’s education programs. We’re excited to report the event is sold out and we’re sure it will be a very special evening for all concerned.
Tomorrow night the ensemble performs the first official concert of this tour at the Perth Concert Hall. They then travel to Adelaide, where their concert on Thursday 19 July will be broadcast live on ABC Classic FM! Participants in the ABC and Musica Viva’s Vocal Romp will also be performing in foyers before each concert. Stay tuned to the ABC to hear the winners announced!
You can hear more of Amarcord on ABC’s The Music Show on Saturday 21 July. The group’s second program will be broadcast live on ABC Classic FM on Tuesday 31 July. And don’t forget the special pre-concert talks by speakers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions 45 minutes prior to each concert.
For the educationally minded, Amarcord will present a masterclass at Sydney Conservatorium High School on Friday 20 July at 6pm, featuring choirs from the Conservatorium High School and The Arts Unit, as well as Sydney University Madrigal Society.
