PLANET: SACRED WORLD
25 Oct 2012 | Thursday
Join us for an enchanting evening with Sydney’s captivating sacred music duo, Oscar & Marigold, performing some of the oldest and most beautiful sacred music written from Hildegard Von Bingen to the Dead Sea Scrolls, early Christian chant to the fire of Sephardic song.
Also known as Oscar and Marigold, lauded composer, Kim Cunio and award winning singer and soloist, Heather Lee, have an established musical reputation for excellence. Think Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras with more of a Near Eastern intonation and you are close. Heather has one of the great pure voices of our time, comfortable in many languages and styles, while Kim sings with a velvet bass and plays a myriad of forgotten and rare instruments. They will be joined by World percussion virtuoso Tunji Beier in this unique concert to remember an ancient, sacred world.
Presented by BEMAC and Brisbane Powerhouse
