Enjoy a casual attitude to sound and movement

Melbourne Recital Centre’s series of Relaxed Performances provides the same exceptional artists in the best place to hear, with an environment particularly suitable for audience members with autism, learning disabilities or sensory sensitivities.

Evergreen Ensemble join us for this Relaxed Performance. Evergreen Ensemble bridges the gap between folk music and baroque music. Known for their virtuosic programs bringing together the best of Australia’s early music talent and folk icons, they weave stories back through time, rediscovering the sounds of folk melodies performed on period instruments. The ensemble has recorded three albums this year – the last two for ABC Classics – exploring early Scottish-Australian music manuscripts and collections.

Evergreen Ensemble takes you to the rugged coasts of Brittany where the Celtic harp has a long history accompanying song and where the bombard and fiddle have the power to get a crowd of 500 dancing. Fine examples of dance music from the royal courts of Versailles intertwine with folk songs and instrumental melodies from the French countryside.

Supported by The Calvert-Jones Foundation and The Samuel Nissen Charitable Foundation.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
