Three Sides of Love and Death
SYDNEY WORLD MUSIC CHAMBER ORCHESTRA COMES TO QUEANBEYAN and the SOUTHERN TABLELANDS ARTS REGION

A Chamber Orchestra like no other…

Southern Tablelands Arts in collaboration with Musica Viva, The Q Performing Arts Centre, Queanbeyan City Council and the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium proudly present this very unique concert by the Sydney World Music Chamber Orchestra.

The 11 piece orchestra is assembled from musicians from diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds creating ‘new’ Australian music that traverses cultures, faiths and genres.  The orchestra features musicians and the musical cultures and traditions.

Three Sides of Love and Death is a concert that traverses the sacred and cultural traditions of the world and brings them together, to explore the universal themes of unconditional love and rites of passage through the culturally diverse stories and sacred music practices of the Chamber Orchestra musicians.

The premiere performance of Three Sides of Love and Death opened the 2014 Sydney Sacred Music Festival to a sold out audience. Three Sides of Love and Death explores the universal themes of unconditional love and rites of passage created through the stories and sacred music practices of culturally, linguistically and religiously diverse artists.

The songs performed by the ensemble capture each member’s perspective on love and death and, the in-between (the third side), taking audiences on a transformative journey and is one of the most unique music experiences to come out of Sydney.

With music performed in diverse languages and ancient traditions to contemporary sacred pop fusions, this ensemble showcases an array of diverse talent. It includes traditions from Aboriginal Australia, Mongolia, East Turkistan, Vietnam, China, Mexico (and more), this is a sacred Symphony for everybody!

There is a sense of something greater than a group of musicians. Richard Petkovic, Music Director Sydney World Music Chamber orchestra says “Our music showcases the future of Australian music by combining our many cultures into music that touches the spirit.”
