Students from the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music will feature in one of Melbourne’s premier arts events this month – the Melbourne Festival.
The Festival, which runs from 11 to 27 October, is one of Australia’s flagship international arts festivals, and Monash proud to be a sponsor.
Monash is sponsoring two projects featured in the line-up – Membra Jesu Nostri, featuring the Monash Sinfonia, and Future Fusion.
Membra Jesu Nostri will be a lunchtime escape for city workers in the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral. The Monash Sinfonia will perform seven medieval cantos with the Consort of Melbourne and a professional vocal ensemble.
The second project, Future Fusions, will see international virtuoso violinist Tim Fain teaming up with our School of Music staff and students at the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon for an exclusive performance.
Membra Jesu Nostri runs at 1pm from Tuesday 9 to Friday 12 October at St Paul’s Cathedral in the Melbourne CBD. Future Fusions will run for one evening only, 6pm, Saturday 27 October, at the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon.
Bookings can be made through Ticketmaster on the Melbourne Festival website.
