Play On Series Six
Classical and electronic music combine in a Collingwood car park.
Ever wondered what happens when you blend electronic tunes with classical music (and a car park)? Find out, when the sixth edition of Play On takes over the Collingwood Underground Car Park next month.
Held across three Friday night shows — on March 8, 15 and 22 — the series sets out to smash preconceptions and blur musical genres in a way that'll inspire music-lovers of all persuasions. Each of the dynamic shows features a classical chamber music performance, leading into a contemporary set by an electronic DJ.
On March 8, you'll catch a string quartet led by magnetic violinist Kyla Matsuura-Miller, performing works ranging from those of 12th Century composer Hildegard von Bingen to Steve Reich of 1988's 'Different Trains'. DJ Babicka then rounds out the night with an upbeat, dance-floor ready, set inspired by their classical counterparts.
The following week, on March 15, sees a world-first collaboration between classical percussionist Thea Rossen and acclaimed electronic duo Sleep D. The final show promises a night of genre-bending fun dished up by Chinese-Australian guzheng (a Chinese plucked string instrument) player Mindy Meng Wang and PBS host DJ Adriana.
