Odeon Theatre,


True North is composed by Tim Moriarty, a designer and digital musician whose virtuosic work blends genres. Tim draws on his classical training as a flautist, on digital work as a computer animator, and on his belonging to the Yanyuwa people of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory.

Tim is joined in creative collaboration by pre-eminent Australian conductor Simon Kenway and in performance by Simon (keyboard) and young Australian London-based guitar luminary Andrey Lebedev.

“True North has the potential to influence dialogue about Indigenous/non-Indigenous musical collaboration. It pushes boundaries and interweaves divergent musical, spiritual and design traditions to create a New Work that promises to be highly significant for Australian music.”

The formula for a house concert is quite simple:

  • supper or afternoon tea (home-made goodies and fresh tea/coffee/herbal/… ), and
  • invite people to come enjoy the music in a warm friendly and relaxed ambience.
  • You make up a group with your friends, and bring a bottle of wine if you wish.
  • The artists dazzle and move us with their brilliance, and
  • are rewarded with our grateful applause, and the proceeds!  And ..
  • We all have a good time!
