As always, I start with the finest free-range topics, nurture them until they're brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin'.   Remember, my cruelty-free jokes are ALWAYS tested on animals, and 100% goat-approved by the time you hear them.   That's quality you can trust.

Arj Barker is arguably Australia's favourite American comedian.  In recent years, he has spent more time in our country than his own and has come to understand our culture perhaps better than we understand it ourselves.  His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.

Few, if any have done as much to celebrate the life and music of Peter Allen as Todd McKenney.

Todd has delighted audiences as the original star of the musical The Boy From Oz and who has been shaking Allen’s maracas in various guises ever since.  20 years on, Todd pays homage to Peter Allen in his live event, Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen: The Piano Sessions, inviting fans to get up close and personal in an intimate, relaxed setting: just Todd himself, Michael Rohanek on grand piano, Ralph Marshall on bass, additional vocals from the amazing Lisa Callingham, and Allen’s fantastic songs.

It’s all about having fun with a lot of laughs, a few poignant moments and some great music.

‘Their ability to play as if drawing from a shared musical consciousness and their subtle nuances of tempo, bordered on the uncanny’.
– The West Australian

Although regarded as Australia’s finest guitar duo performing much of the instrument’s standard classical repertoire, the Grigoryan Brothers’ passion is to expand their horizons through new arrangements, their own compositions and commissions.

This ambition can be heard as the brothers take the guitar into genres such as jazz, folk and contemporary music. There are no boundaries, only new frontiers to cross. In concert, mix it all together and you have a dimension to guitar-playing rarely seen in the musical world.

In the lush, lingering melodies, a certain Russian pathos never seems far away. Long snowy nights, tender childhood memories, glimpses of lost love and unspoken passion...

By turns virtuosic and intimate, passionate and lyrical, Tchaikovsky is the quintessential Romantic— conjuring powerful emotions with his heart on his sleeve.  This program is a wonderful opportunity to hear the extraordinary talents of MCO’s string musicians at their best—with Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking showpiece for string orchestra, the Serenade for Strings, the charming Album for the Young and Souvenir d’un lieu cher, imaginative variations by Arensky and witty dances by Shostakovich.
