Event Details

One of Australia’s best known composers, Ross Edwards, has created a unique sound which seeks to reconnect music with elemental forces and restore such qualities as ritual, spontaneity and the impulse to dance. Ross Edwards, our 2010 Composer-in-Focus, will be in person at ‘the Joan’ for this special education event, with many of his most well-known pieces, including White Cockatoo Spirit Dance, Marimba Dances and Water Spirit Song, being performed by the acclaimed Ensemble Offspring. As well as the concert itself, your students have the opportunity to be tutored by the man himself in an accompanying composition workshop.
