Pop-up performances livestreamed from secret locations

Enjoy classical music performances in response to the urban landscapes of Penrith and St Marys across a series of micro concerts. Eight emerging performers and composers have collaborated with three professional mentors to develop a diverse collection of repertoire to delight and move audiences as part of Street Notes.

The concerts offer an array of diverse sounds and styles from different centuries of classical music drawing on favourite composers, hidden gems, and new works.

The performances are uplifted with the help of a whimsical set design by Dale Morgan. Inspired by a new imagining of the Pied Piper, the magical melodies from the Street Notes performers bring the urban landscape to life.

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE:

21 November in Penrith

Penrith Street Notes – Part 1

Two favourite works for solo flute and violin by Bach are presented alongside a new arrangement of the romantic violin melody “Yumeji’s Theme” by contemporary Japanese composer Shigeru Umebayashi.

Penrith Street Notes – Part 2

In this special location, three reflective and moving pieces are performed. Soprano Yasmin Arkinstall shows how old and new music can come together in song. In Penrith, she performs baroque music by Barbara Strozzi alongside a new art song she has written with composer Wesley Stormer inspired by the Nepean river. The concert is closed with the delicate and peaceful melodies of Yoshimatsu’s White Landscapes for flute and cello.

Penrith Street Notes – Part 3

Koechlin’s sweeping French wind trio brings unique sounds to Triangle Park. Wesley Stormer, whose compositional voice is inspired by French romanticism, has written his own trio and a work for solo cello presented after. Electroacoustic composer Frank Dwyer offers his own version of a trio with a contemporary response played via laptop throughout the park.

28 November in St Marys

St Marys Street Notes – Part 1

The unlikely duo of soprano and trumpet come together to perform old and new repertoire. Handel’s bright and energetic “Rejoice Greatly” is paired with a premiere work by emerging composer Leila Harris. Closing this concert is a hidden gem by French composer Lili Boulanger – a nocturne for piano and violin.

St Marys Street Notes – Part 2

Three works for solo instrument will bring colour and energy to this St Marys pedestrian hub. Striking contemporary melodies for trumpet, clarinet and flute will accompany the evening urban landscape of St Marys starting with the appropriate “Street Song” for trumpet.

St Marys Street Notes – Part 3

Surrounded by the bright and bold colours of St Marys street art, a new work for clarinet and electronics by Frank Dwyer performed by Max Harris will bounce off the alley walls. Leila Harris will close the concert by performing her edgy and exciting work for solo piano.
