[Two of Australia’s most adventurous classical musicians, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello), are performing their beautiful multimedia show, Where Song Began. Based on Tim Low’s bestselling book, this performance tells the story of the evolution of song, featuring music spanning 300 years, stunning visual projections and an immersive soundscape. The experience has been described as “like being sung to by the country”. this 50-minute performance explores the Australian origins of song, ‘the birds that can sing’. Such is their evolutionary significance, ‘one may ask whether human music would have reached the heights it has, had the first songbird not sung in an Australian rainforest.’
The performers: Simone Slattery was a 2018 Churchill Fellow, received a PhD in Music Performance from the University of Adelaide and performs regularly with Australia’s finest ensembles. Anthony Albrecht is an Australian graduate of The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program and enjoys an international career.

Night of dancing and entertainment on the Saturday 21st September to raise funds towards the development of our documentary, PHILOXENIA, the latest documentary by award winning Adelaide filmmaker, Anne Tsoulis, whose last documentary FROM UNDER THE RUBBLE won best documentary at the 22nd Arab Film Festival in San Francisco and Best International Documentary at the Jelly Fest Hollywood, and was nominated for best documentary at various Australian and international film festivals.
PHILOXENIA tells the powerful story of the heroes of Lesbos who between May-October 2015 helped rescue some 400,000 refugees landing on their shores. Why tell the story now? We find ourselves in a world where xenophobia is on the rise and we want to address the imbalance by promoting the word, Philoxenia, defined as kindness to strangers and the antonym to xenophobia, and by doing so promote its use in any discourse on migration and refugees.
Its world premiere will be at the Adelaide International Film Festival in October 2020.
We thank the Greek Orthodox Community of SA for its support in helping to sponsor the event.
