CSO’s Australian Series Final Concert for 2017

Looking for something new and interesting to do this Thursday?

Two of the capital’s favourite institutions, the Canberra Symphony Orchestra and the National Portrait Gallery, will join forces again on Thursday, 31 August at 6:30pm, for the final Australian Series concert of the year.

This experience, featuring a beautiful combination of flute and harp sounds in conjunction with stunning portraits of countless people that history has forgotten, is sure to excite and delight you.

The visual arts and music are truly perfect partners. Artists working in both mediums have recourse to the same tools – such as colour, form, light and dark, harmony and discord, to create emotion and help us better understand the world around us. Thursday’s program, which includes original pieces written by young Australian women, inspired by the works in this exhibition is truly unique and offers something for everyone.

The audience will certainly enjoy the National Portrait Gallery’s Gordon Darling Hall – a superb space both visually and acoustically for this concert. A private tour of the featured exhibition Dempsey’s people: a folio of British street portraits 1824-1844 follows the recital performance and is included in the ticket price.

Happening Thursday, 31 August from 6.30pm at the National Portrait Gallery, Parkes Place, Parkes.
