Homophonic! A concert of new classical music written by LGBTIQ+ composers. Featuring Sapphic Symphonists, Homosexual Harmonies, and everything in between.
Classical music has a long and proud history of composers being as gay as the day is long, and Homophonic! is honouring their legacy by exploring the sound world of the LGBTIQ+ composers of today. Featuring Australian and world premieres for voices and strings, performed by Melbourne’s most in demand string quintet, and the glorious voices of The Consort of Melbourne. For our inaugural performance at Bendigo Pride, we are honoured to present “Shimmer” a new work inspired by Maxx Primmer (and three of his important people) by Bendigo composer Louisa Trewartha encouraging us to surround ourselves with people who let you shine; and composer Caerwen Martin telling the inspirational story of Daylesford’s trailblazing Yvonne Sillett.
Come and immerse yourself in sumptuous strings and soaring voices, celebrating queer art and queer stories through the power of music. Presented by 3 Shades Black, Directed by Miranda Hill Homophonic! is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria
Tickets: $30 (Concession $25)
