Play On - Classical meets Electronic April 19 2017

Play On is a performing arts company that showcases Australia’s most acclaimed young classical musicians alongside the country’s best electronic artists, connecting audiences and performers through its unique and unconventional concert format. Recognising a global shift in the way audiences engage with live music, Play On was founded in 2016 to create an entirely new musical experience. Pairing a set of classical chamber music with a set by an electronic musician, Play On has upended and revitalised the concert experience. Held in unconventional spaces and with innovative programming, Play On is about creating an accessible, inclusive and affordable musical experience that attracts new and diverse audiences to both classical and electronic music. For this special Cellar Door edition of Play On, we’ll see members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra playing a repertoire of Bach // Shostakovich // Dessner across a 1 hour set. The evening will then transition into deep space with absolute legend of the Sydney electronic music scene, Simon Caldwell, who will guide us through a floor filling 3 hours of often untroden sounds. Deep techno, electonica, off-kilter house music and everything in between. An inspiring musical journey traversing a modern contemporary spectrum of sound. Don't miss it. Lineup: Play On Classical Collective including: Glenn Christensen // Violin Ike See // Violin Alexandru-Mihai Bota // Viola Timo-veikko Valve // Cello Simon Caldwell
