I really like the Story

Celebrated musicians of diverse interest and background come together to engage in an afternoon demonstration of the sacred in music. The artists enact how the artform conveys the truly humanistic essence of what binds us through musical and dialogical interaction.

As part of the performance the artists will discuss their insights, feelings and experience of the ‘sacred’ in the pursuit of music, friendship and human interaction as the basis of culture.

Featuring the best of the Sydney Jazz scene and more: Steve Elphick, James Greening, Sandy Evans, Andrew Dickeson, Bobby Singh, Judy Bailey, and Ellen Kirkwood.
