From Thu 04 to Sun 07 March and from Tue 09 until Fri 12 March, 160 1:1 Concerts will take place at the Adelaide Festival! Amazing venues showcasing known and hidden gems in a most beautiful and varied city.
First Day: splendid Carrick Hill, alternating performances with Slava Grigoryan and Belinda Gehlert.
Second Day: A wonderful morning at Government House playing to women experiencing homelessness who are supported by the Hutt St Centre and Catherine House charities. “Performing 1:1 CONCERTS to women experiencing homelessness yesterday have been the most moving experiences of my performing life. Thank you Hutt St Centre, Catherine House – Support for Women Experiencing Homelessness, Mahmood Martin Foundation and Adelaide Festival for making this possible.” So Sally Walker.
In the afternoon 1:1 CONCERTS were in the iconic venue of the Adelaide Oval scoreboard.
Third Day: set was an extended “Still Life with Pumpkins and Onions” (Hans Heysen) at The Cedars, where listeners were also able to see Hans Heysen’s studio – Australia’s oldest artist’s studio able to be viewed – and Nora Heysen’s studio, as well as the Heysen family home and gardens.
