Love, Kindness, Decency

Canberra Symphony Orchestra Australian Series

Thursday 12 March 2020

The performance explores music as a powerful, healing response to pain. Directed by Kirsten Williams, the CSO Chamber Orchestra will premiere two work by rising Australian composers. The program also features three works written for the Hush Foundation, which commissions music to reduce stress and anxiety in hospital environments.

The concert is followed by an after-hours viewing of the National Portrait Prizes.

The Australian Series presents contemporary classical music written exclusively by Australians. Presented by Singapore Airlines in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, the series champions the perspectives and celebrates the creative expression of both established and emerging composers.

Performance 6:30pm
Exhibition viewing 7:30pm
