Where Song Began

A unique concert experience is coming to Franklin’s Palais Theatre on Australia Day.  Violinist Simone Slattery and cellist Anthony Albrecht subtly combine a range of classical music from Bach to Vaughan Williams, with recordings of Australian birdsong while simultaneously showing illustrations, photographs and videos of birds and landscapes.This highly original multi-media event is inspired by Tim Low’s award winning book “Where Song Began: Australia’s Birds and How They Changed the World”.

Having already toured in the UK and US as well as several Australian states, Albrecht teams with Slattery to bring this unusual event to Tasmania. Albrecht is a graduate of the famous Juilliard Music School in New York, and Slattery was recently awarded a PhD in Music Performance from the University of Adelaide and performs regularly with Australia’s finest ensembles.

This very special performance is not to be missed – at the Palais Theatre in Franklin on Australia Day, Saturday 26th January.  The one-hour performance starts at 7pm, and includes a Q&A session afterwards.  Palais doors open at 6.30.

Book online at https://wheresongbegan.com or buy your ticket at the Palais door – adults $20, under 18 years $5.

The performance is supported by Birdlife Tasmania. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to Birdlife.
