Event Details

Forest Collective and emerging alternative-pop artist Max Lawrence join forces to premiere an orchestral re-imagining of Lawrence’s debut EP Chlorophyll as part of Midsumma Festival. A conceptual song cycle exploring the process of spiritual and emotional healing Chlorophyll is a sonic journey encapsulating both darkness and light. It reflects on growing from pain and states of apathy and depression to ultimately reconnecting with ourselves and the world around us through music, love, and an appreciation for the beauty of nature. Allow us to wrap you in the warm and sumptuous melodies of Max Lawrence, as he leads you into the sun-soaked world of Chlorophyll, performed for the very first time with a 10-piece chamber ensemble conducted by Evan J. Lawson. Featuring arrangements by Alex Morris and Matt Hirst, this unforgettable evening of moving, dynamic and cathartic live performance at the iconic Abbotsford Convent is not to be missed.

Performers: Max Lawrence - Vocals Evan J Lawson - Musical Director & Conductor Kim Tan - Flutes Ryan Williams - Recorders Ali Fyffe - Saxophones Natasha Fearnside - Clarinets William Elm (Diimpa) - Accordion Samantha Ramirez - Harp Trea Hindley - Trombone Helen Bower (Pieces of Helen) - Violin Rosemary Hunt - Cello Ian Crossfield - Double Bass Orchestration - Evan J Lawson, Alex Morris & Matt Hirst
