Event Details

The Ady Ensemble has proudly supported local composers and performers over the last seven years. As a tribute, it gives us great pleasure to be performing some of the works that have been written for us over this time by some of our local composers; each composer bringing their different backgrounds and approaches to composition to each piece.

But don't be afraid - the works are very beautiful and listenable, and occasionally humorous. Who knows, you may even walk out humming one of their tunes!

The program will include Corrina Bonshek's luscious "Journey to the Centre", for strings & pre-recorded bird calls, Rachel Merton's robust & tuneful "Allegro for Strings", arrangements by Adrian Head of Debussy's, "Clair de Lune", Regurgitator's, "Polyester Girl" (complete with iPhone soloist 📱), & his Michael Jackson & Richard Strauss inspired arrangement/elaborations, "Thriller: the Transformation of MJ & the undead", & "Herr Strauβ, wir entschludigen uns fϋr Unannehmlichkeiten".

For some of you, this might be the first time that you will hear some of these works; for others, it may be a chance to hear them in concert once again. Either way this will be a performance that will not be repeated soon, so don't miss out!

Featured non-Australian music: Brioschi: Symphony in D major (1st Movement) (Australian Premiere)
