Details

Australia’s indie-pop darling Sophie Koh presents an intimate night of exquisite strings and beautiful songs.

The singer-songwriter has delved into her Chinese heritage and drawn on her Western classical piano roots for her latest offering Book of Songs.

A thrilling and unpredictable fusion of styles, the genre-breaking Book of Songs is an album of pop songs where East meets West, influenced by Chinese poetry and Western classical music. Through her music Sophie speaks about the journey from her childhood days in Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand to her Triple J Unearthed days in Darwin.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Sophie Koh
