Event Details

Sydney Wind Symphony is proud to present in collaboration with Queenwood Girls School a special concert program showcasing soloist Claire Edwardes premiering Dare to Declare Concerto for Marimba by Anne Cawrse with wind ensemble. The concert program also gives voice to compositions by emerging Australian artists Christine Pan and Eleanor Brimblecombe alongside a line-up of Australian compositions including Matthew Hindson’s rhythmically driving ‘Requiem for a City’, Jodie Blackshaw’s ‘The Blessing of Light’ from her Symphony No 1 and Percy Grainger’s melodious depiction of the Australian countryside in ‘Colonial Song’. Acclaim for Dare to Declare “The work gains its subtitle from three Australian arts figures who inspired its movements: poet Oodgeroo Noonuccal, painter Clarice Beckett and composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks. Add another female champion to the list, because marimbist Claire Edwardes, the concerto’s dedicatee, is a luminary in her field too. Darting from one end of the 2.6m-wide instrument to the other, she dazzled with energy and authority. ”- In Review (Dare to Declare, ASO)
