FLOCK Festival | SOMEONE WILL REMEMBER US: A Showcase by Tenth Muse Initiatve
Classical music collective, Tenth Muse, shares classical music performances from the past, present, and future — each piece being written by composers who have been marginalised or disempowered throughout history. A crash course on the diverse voices who can be overlooked in classical music, for reasons that have nothing to do with talent. Ranging from vocal music written by the Romantic period’s brightest stars that have never been professionally recorded, to a piece that combines contemporary saxophone with dubstep, this concert will have something for everyone. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Tenth Muse is a local collective founded by the next generation of classical musicians. While borne out of frustration with the lack of diversity which can be a mainstay of art music, Tenth Muse is now looking for the light, and showing the way. In under three years they’ve held an award winning Fringe Show; commissioned new works by emerging composers, poets, and artists somewhere between; and held concerts centred around everything from opera to cups of tea. All with the goal of highlighting the diversity that already exists in classical music, creating a platform for new voices in WA, and designing concerts which make classical music engaging and welcoming.
This event is part of FLOCK FESTIVAL, a 31 day showcase of WA Creativity & Culture in October 2022 in celebration of Pigeonhole’s 15th Anniversary.
