Phoenix Collective | Tales of War
27 August 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm AEST
Turmoil, tension, destruction and death. Why have humans turned to war, when the outcome is so bleak?
This powerful program explores sadness, greed, human nature, mother nature, fascism, freedom and the enduring human spirit.
PCQ are back (from a brief maternity break for Ella) ready to deliver this epic saga. String quartets by Shostakovich, Barber (aka Adagio for Strings) and Joe Hisaishi’s Princess Mononoke (Studio Ghibli).
“to the victims of fascism and the war” – Dimitri Shostakovich
“They brought this music alive through a dynamic performance…The audience loved it and it showed the individual talents of the group.” – R. Kennedy, City News
