The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is here to broader your musical horizons with an upcoming festival – the ANAM Set Festival (May 13-15) – showcasing over eight hours of work by 67 Australian composers, produced last year in collaboration with 67 ANAM performers.
The festival hopes to bring in audiences from all walks of life, and challenge traditional conceptions of composition and ‘classical music’ – beginning with the notion that, just because a piece includes acoustic instruments and is in notational format, it must belong strictly to the genre.
Tickets for the ANAM Set Festival can be found here. You can claim 25% back through the Victorian Dining and Entertainment Program. Can’t make it? Tune in to Radio National, who will be broadcasting live from the Convent on Saturday (May 14). Visit the ANAM website here.
