Australian music performed by some of the finest musicians living in the UK and presented at one of Mayfair’s most glamorous churches.
“Australia’s music is as diverse and as vast as the geographically remote Pacific continent itself. Its composers are a rare species much like the exotic flora and fauna and the Aboriginal people who have flourished on its shores over thousands of years. Celebrating Australian Music pays tribute to its composers both past and present whether native-born or emigré, many of whom I have known or still know personally. By performing this music we celebrate their individuality and their integrity and proudly claim them as a prize jewel in Australia’s growing sense of cultural heritage.” – Wendy Hiscocks, Artistic Director
Today we feature Cellist Coral Lancaster, one of the soloists in the star-studded line up at the 24 November ‘Music of Oz’ concert.
‘And I saw a new heaven’ is probably his best known work, but find out about the incredible journey from Hackney to Sydney of Edgar Bainton, whose songs will be performed at CAM’s Music of Oz concert on 24 November.
