seymour nights


June 26, 2021 @ 8:00 pm

In this program we join forces on a new work by Perth composer Simon Charles commissioned last year as part of our Hatched HOME Academy in 2020, providing new opportunities for artists during COVID – as well as Bitter Springs Creek 2014 by Hollis Taylor and Jon Rose which celebrates the duelling calls of the pied butcher birds of central Australia. Four of our core musicians shine as soloists with a classic from Kaija Saariaho, a new piece from emerging composer Johannes MacDonald alongside world premieres from Nicole Lizée (Canada) and local ladies Bree van Reyk and Alice Humphries. Come and bask in our slipstream, a visual and sonic wonderland for the senses.

Seymour Nights is proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with City of Sydney.
