Event Details

The Muses Trio are some of Australia’s leading and most exciting musicians in contemporary classical music, known for their edgy, spine tingling and virtuosic performance style: Christa Powell (violin, Topology), Louise King (Cello Dreaming) and Therese Milanovic (piano, Topology). We're thrilled to launch our debut CD, The Spirit and the Maiden, with a rare performance at Boggo Road Gaol inside the former women's prison. Experience this celebration of music composed by women, performed by women, from within the former women's cellblock, with special guests from Vulcana Women's Circus. Extend the experience by attending a ghost tour focusing on the lives of some of the most notorious inmates.

The performance drawn from the CD features highlights of three successful seasons of beautiful chamber music events, including several world premiere recordings by Kate Neal (Australia)*, Louise Denson (Australia)*, Cécile Elton (Australia)*, alongside works by audience favourites Elena Kats-Chernin (Australia), Jennifer Higdon (USA), and Judith Bingham (UK) and gorgeous gems by Amy Beach and Nadia Boulanger. Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience a beautiful chamber music event inside the walls of Boggo Road Gaol before it is redeveloped later in 2016.

Performers: Muses Piano Trio: Christa Powell (violin); Louise King (cello); Therese Milanovic (piano)

Featured non-Australian music: Music by Amy Beach, Nadia Boulanger, Jennifer Higdon and Judith Bingham
