In The Making II
The Tasmanian Youth Classical Ballet Company (TYCBC) join forces with Israeli choreographer Neta Pulvermacher to create a new work for Moonah MOVES. They have only a week to make it! Catch this sneak peek preview only at MAC, performed with live music from Charlie McCarthy and the Xyris Saxophone Quartet.

Viola Loop
Charlie McCarthy presents Viola Loop, performed on 5 string electric violin with live looping. The musical ideas in looping are as old as music itself: repetition and imitation, counterpoint and transformation. Live Looping is a way to create music which can be used with any style and instrument with one musician able to create the sound of a whole orchestra, all live.

Xyris Saxophone Quartet
Xyris is an awesome classically trained saxophone quartet with a keen interest in new music and the music of Australian composers. They play on vintage saxophones, which give a darker fuller sound and are the only quartet in Australia of this school of playing. Xyris have played concerts in Hobart both as a group and as a part of concerts showcasing locally composed new music.

Show starts at 6pm, doors and bar open from 5pm.
$5 on the door / kids under 12 free
