drawing breath

When: Friday 21 October, from 7 pm
Where: Hume Conservatorium, Creative Precinct, 160 Bourke St, Goulburn
Cost: $22.19, book here.

The words “I can’t breathe” have echoed worldwide as a harrowing reminder of the ongoing persecution of black communities in the US and Australia. As our breath is a base expression of our feelings, we let out anxious or surprised gasps, sighs of relief, deep breaths when we brace ourselves, and we hold our breath when we wait. From Machaut and Monteverdi to Pink Floyd and Queen, this special Luminescence Chamber Singers performance draws on first breaths, last breaths and music as diverse as the vast compass of human life in between.
