Homophonic! is back for it’s 6th fabulous year. 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 those artists 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.
This year we have a new solo work for Viola by Nirmali Fenn, performed by Phoebe Green; a delectable low trio of two bass flutes and cello by Madelyn Byrne; and an exciting new septet by Marc Yeats, among other treats for your ears.
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.
