ORC Chamber Academy | Origins New Works for New Faces

The ORC Chamber Academy represents the beginning of many young musician’s journeys through the world of chamber music. Nearly a dozen of Orange’s best and brightest school-age musicians come together to form the Chamber Academy, exploring the powerful connections that the intricacies of chamber music provides. The OCMF. Festival provides some of the highest quality training for the students of the academy as they perform alongside some of the best musicians from all over Australia.

4:30pm   ORANGE REGIONAL GALLERY – Alan Sisley Gallery

In Transit Emily Granger harp

Inspired by her life as an American artist living in Australia, Emily Granger performs contemporary works that unearth the breadth and beauty of harp music from the two countries. From Australia, much-loved composers Elena Kats-Chernin and Ross Edwards feature with exciting emerging voices. Equally breath taking are works by American luminaries Libby Larsen, Augusta Read Thomas and Robert Patterson. With themes of travel and isolation; serenity and solitude; this music paints a vivid portrait of an artist’s life in transit between opposite sides of the globe. Rich in imagination and overflowing with stories, this is a chance to observe Emily’s artistry like you’ve never heard it before.

Art Display: Salvatore Zofrea  – The Drawn Line
