Evolving from the inaugural 2021 format, the upcoming Music in the Sky program will be performed as a series of miniature shows throughout 2022, staged within unique locations around Sydney. This Mini-series is a set of more intimate performances that will bring audiences closer to the music and the performing musicians. The program will be focused on diversity, celebrating music from the romantic era of Maria Theresia von Paradis, baroque composer J.S. Bach, right to the modern neoclassical, modern contemporary, including Olafur Arnalds, Luke Howard, Joep Beving and Max Ritcher. The performances will feature stars and guest musicians, celebration of the cello, a blend of Eastern and Western music and more.
In keeping with the exquisite and evocative ambience of the debut show, each Music in the Sky Mini performance promises unique lighting and visuals designed to complement the theme of the show, allowing the audience to engage in a multi-sensory experience of music, light and sound, skillfully coordinated to create an immersive and seamless experience. The Ciele Cello performances in January and A night with Anna Murakawa with special guest Vladimir Gorbach in February, make use of a tunnel at the venue within which the musicians perform, producing unique acoustics and further enhancing the experience to be savoured by the audience.
Gracing the stage at Ciele Cello will be celebrated Australian pianist, Brieley Cutting, who has appeared as concerto soloist with orchestras including the Melbourne Symphony, Adelaide Symphony, Queensland Symphony, Melbourne Youth Orchestra, and the Nizchny-Novgorod Philharmonic.
Locally created and produced, Music in the Sky is a unique and inspiring production appealing to all ages, promising a glimpse into a world far away from the turbulence of the past couple of years and a balm to soothe the soul.
