Percussionist devotees will celebrate the birth of American composer Lou Harrison with performances by Steven Schick, Jan Williams and William Winant's, American Triptych.

In October, a co-production with the Melbourne Recital Centre in association with the Melbourne Festival will see Brenda Rae making her long awaited Australian debut joining the ANAM Orchestra for the Glories of French Baroque: ANAM'S 2017 Gala concert.

South Melbourne Town Hall will continue to host a number of both international and local acts. Additionally, ANAM will present 180 public events over 2017 including Masterclasses, Fellowship projects, ANAM Recitals and soundbites.

An extensive touring program 'Beyond the Town Hall will be launched. ANAM is partnering with some of Australia's leading organisations to bring the ANAM experience to interstate audiences and performing at The Melbourne Recital Centre, the Sydney Opera House, Queensland Conservatorium of music and many others throughout the season.

Nick Deutsch, ANAM Artistic director, says that "what makes ANAM different is our approach to the music; if it's not, artistically speaking, going to take our musicians to the next level, then it's not in our program."
