Performance

Mullygrubs

March 28 @7pm, 2020

Mullygrubs is the darkly funny baby of two friends; their attempt to make something funny and meaningful from their pain.
Tired of moaning about their mental health – Harry, as a queerman trying to screw his way out of a marginalised existence, and Leah, a woman forever waving “Hi!” from under the ugly boot of the oppressive boys club of life – decided to put their words where their mouths are and start a conversation about the things that don’t get discussed often enough.

This show was everything. So funny, so heartfelt, and touches on everything that is important in life. It’s not often that you get to have massive belly laughs and also be deeply moved by the same
show. DO NOT MISS THIS!
– Yseult Manteli

When: Satruday 28 March 2020 @7pm
Where: MIRA Marysville
Cost: $20

Performance

Ensemble Goldentree – Salon Trios

April 19 @4pm, 2020

A warm, dimly lit drawing room, a piano, friends and colleagues gathered close by. A rotating roster of musicians, artists and poets. In this setting some of the most beautiful chamber music was first written, experimented with and performed.

The intimacy of each breath, each emotion wrought real in close quarters.

Step back in time and experience chamber music as it was meant to be heard through three trios, including Brahms’ monumental Horn Trio and one of Schubert’s final works, Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (‘Shepherd on the Rock’), enhanced with poetry.

Program

BRAHMS – Horn Trio, Op. 40

SCHUBERT – Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (‘Shepherd on the Rock’), D. 965

Performance: 4pm Sunday April 19, 2020
Where: MIRA Marysville, 11 Murchison Street.
Cost: $25 performance

Performance

Ensemble Goldentree – Dark Matter

May 31 @4pm, 2020

A journey through the dark, to what lies beyond. Delve into humanity’s relationship with the dark and the hope that light brings.

Ensemble Goldentree is pared back in this program of uncommon pairings, exploring the time, space and silence that exists between us. Immerse yourself in these private conversations and challenge your perceptions of what chamber music can be and what darkness represents.

Including music by contemporary Australian and American composers and rarely heard from gems from Vaughan Williams and John Taverner alongside words and reflections on dark matter.
