Last year I went along to Ballarat Writers Pure Poetry event in the Art Gallery of Ballarat and was blown away. This year it’s on again.
Hear the Australian voice in poetry and music in this unique recital platform. Presented by Ballarat Writers Inc and the Art Gallery of Ballarat, the Pure Poetry Recital will premiere new works by Victorian poets and composers, featuring cross-artform innovations by award-winning poet Nathan Curnow and Melbourne’s rising star, composer Anthony Lyons. New works by renowned poets will be performed alongside their musical reflections by Victorian composers.
An all-Australian program, including solo, duo and trio works by Brenton Broadstock, Ross Edwards and others. The Pure Poetry Recital will also showcase work by five emerging poets unearthed in the 2010 Pure Poetry Tour, in which Ballarat Writers Inc mentored poets across Western Victoria.
Come on a discovery – you’ll be moved by the interplay between music and words.
I’m reallylooking forward to this year, hearing brand new pieces.
