Song to the Earth

Event , Concert or Performance At Redland Performing Arts CentreRedland Performing Arts Centre

Saturday 21st May - Sunday 22nd May
6:00 - 8:15pm

Stroll through a forest of musicians in this immersive, live music event.

Enjoy a euphoric musical experience as the sun sets surrounded by awe-inspiring light installations.

Song to the Earth is performed by acclaimed Australian string ensemble DeepBlue, Australian percussion icon Michael Askill and his gong orchestra, Greta Kelly on Persian violin, and some of our very own talented young Redlands Coast student performers.

Come on a magical journey over three acts, both indoors and outdoors with an original score inspired by patterns in nature by classical composer Dr Corrina Bonshek.

Act I - Flocking/Spiralling - Walk among the string players as they perform a moving chorale reminiscent of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings.

Act II - Follow the Songbirds - Follow the string players as they move to the beat of the rainforest.

Act III - Ocean of Gongs - Experience the powerful waves of sound from the gong orchestra with solo Persian violin (or shah kaman).

Experience the music up-close right next to the players in this intimate performance.

Free Art and Light Making Workshop. Children/students can also create their own miniature illuminated and wearable art at the free Art + Light Making Workshop on Saturday 21 May at 2 pm in the RPAC Auditorium. These creations can then be paraded during the evening performances.
