A concert is coming… The Melbourne Rainbow Band proudly presents their first major concert for 2014, entitled ‘Novel Sounds.' Hosted by comedian and writer, Sue-Ann Post, join the band and their new Musical Director, Greg Peterson, on a stunning journey through music originally inspired by novels, plays and poetry. Guest vocalist Rob Martin will present two theatrical set-pieces derived from the novels of Charlotte Brontë and Rohald Dahl. He will also return to narrate the world premiere performance of Mark Lyall’s original composition entitled Edge for concert band, narrator and sound designer. The dance talents of Taylor Scanlan and Joshua Waiss Gates will bring to life the contemporary bestselling novels of The Hunger Games and Twilight series in costumes designed especially for this concert. From comic strips to Game of Thrones, science fiction to The Canterbury Tales, ‘Novel Sounds’ invites your imagination to defy gravity as you attend the tale of this unique concert experience.
