Get ready for a concert with a difference!
Rachel is joined by author (and school friend!) Maggie MacKellar for a concert featuring the spoken word and music by Bach (and others). The two ex-Abbotsleigh girls are delighted to be playing in the beautiful space of the Grace Cossington Smith gallery, where you’ll be surrounded by art as you sit and listen.
Maggie (represented by Penguin books) has published two books on the history of settlement in Australia and Canada and two memoirs, When It Rains and How To Get There. To celebrate her new book ‘Graft’, Maggie will be reading excerpts of her writing, linked to Rachel’s playing. It will be a concert that will allow you to appreciate Maggie’s beautiful writing, and the close link between words and music – a moment of peace; time slowing a little.
Door to the venue will open at 6.30pm, and ticket price includes a glass of wine.
Ticket sales will STOP at 8pm the night before the concert, and if there are any available tickets, they will be available at the door. An electronic program will be emailed to all ticket holders by midday, but if you would prefer to have a paper program they will be available as you enter the gallery.
