Kimberley Echoes | Sunday 24 November | 6.30pm – gate open at 5.30pm | Windsong Pavilion
The result of five years of musical collaboration, Kimberley Echoes is a powerful cross-cultural celebration of Kimberley country and its people.
Curated by Tura New Music, the highly acclaimed production features The Narli Ensemble (Nar-lee) in a close collaboration between high profile First Nation artists and some of the country’s finest instrumentalists, Mark Atkins (didgeridoo virtuoso and singer) Stephen Pigram (guitar and vocals), violinist Erkki Veltheim, guitarist Stephen Magnusson, cellist Tristen Parr, percussionist Joe Talia and flautist Tos Mahoney (Tura Founder and Artistic Director).
Songs by Pigram and Atkins, arranged by this unique ensemble, are juxtaposed with new music created by the collaboration all reflecting the complexity and beauty of the Kimberley. Collaborations with local artists, experiences of traditional Joonba song and dance and touring through the provocative Kimberley landscape have all weaved their influence into this work and program.
Tickets $40. 16yrs and under free.

Carols in the Pavilion
Carols in the Pavilion | Sunday 15 December | 8 – 9.30pm (gate open at 7pm) | Windsong Pavilion
A much-loved event in the run-up to Christmas.
Come and hear the Luminescence Chamber Singers present a program of traditional carols from different backgrounds and cultures, and across the centuries. Warm, atmospheric and stunningly beautiful, the voices of The Chamber Singers will offer a true moment of calm before the Festive Season. As always, the concert concludes with mass carols under the starry skies of Barragga Bay, and mulled wine and mince pies.
The Luminescence Chamber Singers is a virtuosic vocal consort based in Canberra, Australia. Since the ensemble’s earliest iteration in 2013, Luminescence has earned a reputation for presenting exciting and excellent singing. The Chamber Singers perform a wide range of repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century, and frequently premiere new music by Australian composers, including emerging composers from within their own ranks.
Tickets $40. 16yrs and under free.More Info
