VENUES AND PROGRAMS
- UNSW Galleries | Sidere Duo
- “Sidere”, from the Latin “de sidere”, meaning “from the stars”, captures creative duo Chloe Chung (flute, dizi ((traditional Chinese flute)) and Pavle Cajic’s (piano, composer) ongoing fascination with music, and its ability to transport us along endless cycles of wonder and play. Their practice draws inspiration from a fusion of cross-cultural influences, romanticism, and a love of the natural world.
- The Unicorn Hotel | Midsummer Madness: The Bard Band, Katherine Roberts Parker, Scott Parker and Daniel Morris
- The Bard Band presents Shakespearean music like you’ve never heard before, featuring songs and dance tunes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and As You Like It with historical instruments and a bit of acting! Be prepared to sing and dance with the performers like Shakespeare’s audiences did in the Globe theatre, evoking the sounds of summer festivals in early modern England.
- Paddington RSL | The Jack Purdon Quartet
- All hailing from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Jack Purdon Quartet will be playing a selection of Jazz and World music including original music from and written by Australian musicians. From Jack Purdon “One of my favourite things about music is the way it makes me and others feel. That is why my goal for every event I play at or organise is to have everyone feeling incredible in their own way. I love the nostalgia, the moments and the memories a great event creates, and I especially love how music is key to that.”
- Imperial Hotel | Prelude – After the fall The Living Room Theatre
- Provoked by the opening of Charlotte Wood’s award-winning book ‘The Natural Way of Things’, theatre maker Michelle St Anne has composed a theatrical soundscape featuring musicians Mark Bosch (Violin), Josephine Macken (Bass Flute), Max Alduca (Double Bass).
- Embodying the sound of the Australian Gothic, the music responds to the disorientation of Wood’s protagonist, Yolanda, in her new dystopian reality.

- The Stables Restaurant | Judgement of Paris recorder quartet
- The Judgment of Paris is a recorder quartet comprised of members of the Historically Informed Practice group at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. They have been working together for over three years, during the course of their studies that have included regular solo and ensemble lessons with Hans-Dieter Michatz. During this time they have played frequently in concerts presented by the Conservatorium’s Early Music Ensemble, including tours in country NSW.
- The Paddington | Suite for Saxophones and Loop Station – Nicholas Russoniello
- Suite for Saxophones and Loop Station is a tour de force of instant composition. Composed and performed by award-winning saxophonist Nick Russoniello, this new work is a layer by layer mash-up of musical influences as diverse as beatbox, reggae, minimalism, polyphony and groove.
