About Six Degrees Ensemble
Melbourne chamber music group Six Degrees Ensemble specialises in Australian, contemporary and lesser-known works. Its invigorating concerts typically feature six or more artists that includes a rotating line-up of guests and the expectation that you may see an exciting variety of instruments in the spotlight, from trombone to timpani.
About the concert
Composers Olivier Messiaen, John Cage and Anne Norman have all been fascinated by the power of music to express spirituality. Six Degrees Ensemble journeys through deep and inspired works, by these artists and more, exploring how music through the ages has sought to convey worship and divine belief in all its forms. Anne Norman’s performance of her mystical music for shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) inspired by Zen traditions is among the highlights.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
