One of Melbourne’s most exciting new chamber ensembles, forged at the Australian National Academy of Music, makes its Melbourne Recital Centre debut.

This compelling program is built around Debussy’s masterwork, the first work created for the magical combination of flute, viola and harp. In between, a musical adventure takes you from the vitality and flair of the French Baroque to the world premiere of a new work written specifically for the Chrysalis Trio by Australian composer Natalie Williams.


Australia’s favourite soul and funk act reinvents selections from its extensive songbook with a 10-piece string ensemble.

Expect lush and inspired soul arrangements – with special guests Washington, Tim Rogers & Urthboy – in a performance launching its new album, By Special Arrangement.The new arrangements of classic Bamboos songs recall the grand tradition of legendary soul arrangers and performers such as Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield.

Led by guitarist, songwriter and producer Lance Ferguson, The Bamboos has been lauded as one of the best live acts in the country, regardless of genre.
