Authentic voices. Brilliant storytelling. Unforgettable artistry. These are the hallmarks of our PASSPORT series. In 2023, you’ll travel to the land “down under” and revel in the Aboriginal art, performance, and culture that helped shape music throughout the world. Lauded Australian conductor Carolyn Watson and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton grace the stage, making their Cape Symphony debuts for this bold, authentic, and provocative musical journey. We’ll feature Australian composers Percy Grainger and Peter Sculthorpe, as well as original music written by Barton for the didgeridoo, an Aboriginal Australian wind instrument made from hollow wood, and a medley of Australian film music.
Pack wisely. You may never want to leave.
Enjoy these Listening Links for Passport Down Under.
