Phoenix Collective showcases classical music with a uniquely Australian edge. This weekend the group is welcoming accomplished international performers, Dan Russell (violin) and Anthony Garcia (guitar) for a concert of rearranged and semi-improvised works, especially for this event.

For Phoenix Collective Director and violinist, Dan Russell, “you can’t get more intimate than sharing a musician’s thoughts and expressions as they improvise. You react in the moment: no chance to go back and edit or rehearse again. It’s all your cards out on the table.”

Anthony Garcia says “Heart and Soul is a program that will blend traditional composition with these special improvised vignettes. In that sense, the audience will truly be part of the creative process–their emotional responses to the music feed-back to us and help generate something unique and original.”

Sep 22. Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church, Cnr Johnston St & Collins St, Annadale. $15-$86+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.pcmusic.net
