Bach in the Dark – Heartland

Fri August 21 at 7:00 pm

For this next concert, Rachel is taking a little break, and is handing over to two dear friends – Veronique Serret and William Barton. The are presenting a special concert – ‘HEARTLAND’.

Heartland is a musical collaboration between didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton and violin powerhouse Véronique Serret. Together they have developed a unique sound that takes a soulful approach to music and storytelling- at once lyrical, earthy and contemporary.

Collaborators William Barton and Véronique Serret join forces creating a modern day songline through their eyes, reflective of the contours of our unique Australian landscape. Didgeridoo, violin and voice come together creating a unique and timeless sound experience.

Together they take listeners on a musical journey exploring songlines, landscape and the immense possibilities of their instruments. Featuring didgeridoo, violins and vocals they blend ancient and modern inspiration.

Ticket sales will close at 4.30pm on the day of the concert. The stream will also stay accessible for a few days after the concert, so if you have plans on this particular night, you can always watch it a few days afterwards…

Veronique and her amazing violin playing is known to Bach in the Dark audiences – in fact, she joined Rachel for a live-streaming concert at the end of March. William is a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, and is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading didgeridoo players and composers. These two musicians collaborate regularly – they have played at the Canberra International Music Festival, the Sydney Festival and in venues all around the country. Be prepared for an amazing night watching these two extraordinary musicians.
