The Art Gallery Society of NSW is thrilled to present the 20th anniversary season of Resonate, and we invite you to join in the celebrations. Immerse yourself in the visual delights of the Art Gallery’s exhibition program before sitting down to experience some of the finest performers from Australia and overseas, while listening to the sublime music of the world’s greatest composers.
With sensitivity, virtuosity and astonishing energy, Triple ARIA award-winning band Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with other world music styles, to create a truly original and irresistibly potent blend. Or as The Age put it, 'a brazen and intoxicating blend of jazz, gypsy swing, Latin and East European influences.’ Monsieur Camembert has received standing ovations around the globe, with acclaimed performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and the International Leonard Cohen Festival. 'Simply the best Gypsy band in the land! They pick you up & carry you on a wave of energy, excitement & poignancy that never relents…the band play with such cohesion, energy and abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation.’ (John Shand, SMH).
The concert will be preceded by light refreshments and a private exhibition viewing. Doors open at 6.30pm. Concert commences at 7.30pm. This event will be held in the Entrance court with cabaret style seating.
