2023 3MBS Marathon TOGETHER – Concert 5 ‘Miraculous’

11 February 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEDT


The 2023 Marathon TOGETHER allows the community to experience the electric outpouring of musical creativity from all over Melbourne during one extraordinary day.

This concert is live streamed from the Melbourne Recital Centre on Australian Digital Concert Hall

Opening with Arcadia Winds playing Ravel and the engaging Animalia by Australian composer, Natalie Williams, the concert then segues to the different and exquisitely expressive sound world of Melbourne veena master, Hari Sivanesan, and his Indian classical trio. No chamber music party is complete without the masterpiece written by the 16-year-old Felix Mendelssohn and this marathon performance of his famous Octet by the formidable, combined forces of Flinders and Penny Quartets promises virtuosity and fireworks galore.
