In 2018, The Joan will continue delivering enriching fine-music experiences, with The Summit Fine Music Series. The line-up is a tantalising
tease for any music connoisseur with Secrets through a Soundglass, Australian Hydn Ensemble, Mirusia,
Four-Colour-Season, The Song Company, The Thomas ES Kelly Project and 8 Grand Pianos.
Secrets through a Soundglass heralds the season on Saturday 24 February with its cues from 20 & 21st century
experimental sounds, presenting music that dares to be different, performed exquisitely by the Sydney Art Quartet,
The Australian Haydn Ensemble will delight audiences with a vivacious performance of pieces faithful to the sound-worlds familiar to Haydn
and his contemporaries on Friday 20 April.
Australia’s angel, soprano Mirusia and her own Chamber Orchestra will wow the audience with her command of opera, musical theatre, pop
and jazz styles in an exquisite winter evening performance on Saturday 30 June.
Four-Colour-Seasonon Friday 28 September takes a journey from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons to new Australian music in a selection of song and indigenous dance to match the patterns and movement of the Earth and the Aboriginal experience of
the seasons. A powerful synthesis of two artforms performed by The Song Company and a duo of dancers from The Thomas ES Kelly Project.
On Saturday 18 August The Joan’s Concert Hall stage will be filled with not one, not two, not three… but eight grand pianos – an orchestra of pianos – with some of Australia’s most brilliant musicians at the helm. With Tamara-Anna Cislowska on board as Music
Director, Eight Grands is not to be missed.
