Event Details

Youthful Melbourne-based multi-disciplinary organisation, Forest Collective present new works alongside influential composers inspired by the mythology, music and the natural beauty of Scandinavia.

Contemporary Scandinavian composers, Lars Ekström and Kaija Saariaho will also be featured embodying exquisite contemporary northern European music.
