New music springs into action in Brighton

3 September 2014

One of Australia’s most innovative and exciting chamber music ensembles, Silo String Quartet is set to herald in spring with Spring Rejuvenation on Sunday 14 September, a concert of art music by composers from Australia and Asia.

For this concert Silo will be joined by guest artists, flautist Johanna Selleck and Lachlan Davidson on saxophone.

Bayside Mayor Cr. Laurence Evans said that the concert, the final of the 2014 Resonance music series, is presented in partnership with the Melbourne Composer’s League and is an exciting opportunity to hear great new Australian music.

“Melbourne is home to some outstanding living composers,” Cr. Evans said.

“Works by composers in this concert have been performed by some of Australia’s most important classical music ensembles including the Melbourne, Adelaide and Queensland Symphonies as well as Opera Australia, Opera Queensland and the former Victorian State Opera,” he said.

New music draws on the history of the western musical tradition but reflects a modern, and importantly, Australian sense of culture, identity and place.

“Spring Rejuvenation provides Bayside residents with an outstanding opportunity to hear some of the best new Australian music that reflects our unique culture and identity” Cr. Evans said.

In 2014 Bayside City Council has presented nine concerts as part of its popular Resonance Music Series which has included concerts of opera, new music and early music.
