Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & The Parlour
A uniquely moving experience in celebration of women.
About the artists
The Parlour focuses on the sung storytelling of Art Song and ballad, often spinning a cabaret-like narrative to bring the program together as a collection. Since their inception, unearthing the intentions behind Art Song compositions and exposing the people and events that inspired them has been part of the journey.
About the concert
Interested in investigating the people hidden in footnotes of music history, The Parlour seeks to tell the stories of those who are too often ignored and forgotten. Women were both creators and enablers of art, and their stories forge a window into the intimate machinations of creative life whether that be first-hand or through observation.
Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon will address the stark gender imbalance in art by celebrating the compositions of Australian women and telling many forgotten stories of women in what will be a uniquely moving experience.
