Local venue alive with the sound of music
The City of Sydney is consistently putting forth initiatives to support the Arts scene in Sydney through its Live Music and Performance Action Plan. As part of this movement, local town halls and other council buildings have been opened up to musicians to use as rehearsal and performance spaces, namely, Glebe Town Hall, which recently underwent a $6.8 million restoration that aimed to make the venue more accessible.
Throughout 2015, nine concerts will be held at the historic building, connecting musicians to live audiences and granting local citizens access to live performance, and more entertainment options. This initiative was supported by independent music promoter Places and Spaces who granted the City of Sydney $25 000 as well as discounted venue hire.
The historic Glebe Town Hall will become a live music venue
The first performance held at Glebe Town Hall will see Hinterlandt Ensemble headline a show, demonstrating their musical experimentation between German and Australian sounds. Bringing together classical string instruments with guitar and brass sounds. Hinterlandt Ensemble produces an interesting chamber-style sound with an experimental acoustic and hip-hop edge – there are turntables involved!
The performance will be held on Sunday the 22nd of March from 5pm at Glebe Town Hall. Tickets are $16 when purchased in advance from Moshtix, or $20 at the door.
Other performers utilising the space throughout the year include Mic Conway, David Bridie, and Crooked Fiddle Band, among many others. You can keep up to date with all the performances through the Places and Spaces website - commoneclectic.com/.
