Homophonic! is back for its 8th fabulous year. Come join us at La Mama Courthouse for an evening of new classical music by queer composers. Celebrating Sapphic symphonists, homosexual harmonies, and the long and proud tradition of composers being as gay as the day is long.
Classical music has a rich heritage of LGBT musicians and composers, and this concert is celebrating the legacy of artists such as Tchaikovsky, Poulenc, Copland and Cage, by performing the work of 20th and 21st century queer composers, in an exciting program featuring famously gay composers alongside new Australian music that is sure to entertain and enlighten even the most experienced concert goer.
We’re bringing the disco ball to the concert hall! Come along to hear some of Melbourne’s most in demand classical musicians play some outlandishly fabulous music, and experience the sound world of the LGBT composers of today.
Performed by 3 Shades Black, and compered by artistic director Miranda Hill, Homophonic! brings together Melbourne’s most in-demand professional musicians, to perform some outlandishly amazing music.
