POSTCARDS • Minokō House Concert

Price $25 – $75 AUD + BF Get Tickets

Event description

Join us for an intimate house concert on beautiful Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island), as Lotte Betts-Dean, Libby Myers and Alex Raineri come together for POSTCARDS.

POSTCARDS explores our many complex and varied relationships to home, to travel, and to the places in our lives. This new collaborative project brings together three of Australia's most exciting artists, UK-based mezzo-soprano and recent Royal Philharmonic Society Awards winner, Lotte Betts-Dean, and in-demand Magandjin/Brisbane artists Libby Myers (guitar) and Alex Raineri (piano). Weaving together works old and new from art song to bossa nova, the concert centres around the world premiere of Postcards by Queensland-born composer Connor D’Netto, a song-cycle reflecting on what “home” can mean to us, settings new texts by Australian artists Aunty Delmae Barton, Megan Steller, Mathew Klotz, Han Reardon-Smith, and Kezia Yap.
