We welcome 2013 with eager anticipation to delve into the exhilarating programs and initiatives we have been planning. This year BEMAC will keep us entertained with infinite doses of world music, our signature festivals and cultural celebrations as well as film series and major projects. We also celebrate our 25th Anniversary with a special concert on Saturday 2 March, so stay tuned for all the event details coming soon.
BEMAC kick starts the year off with a brand new program series: Crossings on Sunday 27 January, presenting United Nations of Indian Classical Music with an impressive line-up of seven international musicians in a joint occasion celebrating India’s Republic Day and Australia Day.
From Thursday 31 January to Sunday 3 February the Festival of Tibet returns to Brisbane Powerhouse in its fifth edition with a program suitable for all ages which includes workshops, forums, exhibitions and evening concert series. You will not only enjoy the fascinating Tibetan culture but you will also be contributing to a great cause as all proceeds will go to the Tibetan Children’s Village in Dharamsala, India.
2013 is filling up with special moments. We are thrilled to have Lilli Kendall, Sahara Beck and Emily Foster on Saturday 9 February, as Lilli launches her debut EPBeginnings. Tickets are already on sale for this event that celebrates Queensland’s young women in music.
We look forward to seeing you all at BEMAC and Queensland Multicultural Center’ new facilities at 102 Main St. Kangaroo Point.
