Thank You Julian

I can't begin to thank you enough for all the opportunities your generous support of the Arts has given me.

Below are some highlights from the past two years since the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, with some photos, videos, recordings and blog posts from along the way.

Argo


My Concert Series

Argo


My Concert Series

Argo is a contemporary classical music concert series and collective from Brisbane Australia. Founded in 2015 by Connor D’Netto, its artistic director and producer, alongside fellow composer/performer and friend Ben Heim, Argo draws upon their background in classical music and contemporary influences to create new works, performances and experiences which bend the boundaries of genre and art form, and to challenge the norms of musical performance and staging with immersive art-music events. In 2016 Argo launched an entire concert series, which included five concerts, presented in collaboration with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Music Festival, Brisbane Writers Festival, Anywhere Festival, the Brisbane Powerhouse, St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane City Council and the University of Queensland. The series featured entirely original programs of contemporary classical and electronic music, tailored to a number of Brisbane’s landmarks and venues, intersecting with other artforms such as live visuals, transformative projections and contemporary Australian literature.


Following on from the successes of 2016, Argo will return in 2017 with a full concert season.

Each of the concerts presents contemporary and established classical music in collaboration with a different local ensemble, reinterpreting the works into single, seamless, continuously flowing programs. The programs focus on contemporary classical music, featuring seven newly commissioned works by emerging to mid-career Australian composers, and the Australian premiere of works by international contemporaries.

Our aim is to combat challenges facing classical music.

Argo presents canonical and contemporary art-music in immersive multi-sensory events that combine multiple artforms, taking classical music out of concert halls into unique/unusual spaces, and breaking down audience/performer divides, creating an inviting and social atmosphere, presented in a way which appeals to audiences that have and haven’t actively engaged with classical music alike.
