We are super excited to be playing at this awesome upcoming concert! With a slightly adjusted line-up – Hik and Chris are taking the night off, and we are joined by percussionists Anna Kho and Jamee Seeto – we are tackling Robert Davidson’s action-packed “Above Ground”. It’s an amazing piece and we’re having a great time pulling it together in the rehearsal room.
Also on the night, the mega-exciting appearance of David T Little and Eileen Mack from US indie-classical giants, Newspeak! An ensemble of exceptional local virtuosos will join them in performing a selection of David T Little’s compositions. Little and Newspeak were a massive inspiration for me, especially in the early years of Nonsemble, and it’s such a treat to get to see this music in my hometown.
Melbourne’s Solstice Trio are also coming all the way up to play some beautiful local and international new music.
