Event description

Description

School of Music Alumna, Rachel Scott will be joined by former teacher and dear friend (and cello great), David Pereira presenting Bach in the Dark.

Bach in the Dark is a time when you can be ‘in the moment’ with the performers. It’s a time when you can forget about the phone bill, or the shopping, or the dire state of Australian politics and simply listen.

The concerts run for just over an hour. They are deliberately informal – each piece is introduced, so there’s no need to look at your program. There is no dress code, no rule about when to clap, no rule about how you are meant to ‘be’ as you are listening (just don’t unwrap sweets when the musicians are playing – it’s louder than you think!).

Every venue will be dark, the players, fabulous

This will be a night of great musical conversation. A critic once said that Rachel and David’s playing “has the feel of a celebration, of untempered, free and loose-limbed music-making, where lines are shaped by boldness…”

The program for this concert will include works by J.S. Bach, re-imagining of Bach by David Pereira and some musical surprises.

Listen to the 2016 recording ‘Dreaming with Daisy’ by Rachel and David.

Tell your friends - tell everyone you know - this will be a concert to remember!

Canberra insitution, the Wig and Pen Brewery and Bar, located at the School of Music, will be open before the concert and serving local wines, an excellent selection of spirits as well as 16 taps of delicious beer brewed on premise by Head Brewer Alan Ball. The kitchen serves up excellent English pub food including burgers, bangers and mash and cheese platters. All main meals come with a brewer's recommendation to match the best beer with your meal.
