In a first, the award-winning composer and bassist Ross McHenry teams up with the ASO for a specially curated concert celebrating the unique and changing cultural landscape of Australian creative music. Considered an important figure in the world of contemporary Australian improvised music, Ross explores a modern Australian cultural identity within the context of an increasingly interconnected global network.

Gigs at Grainger 1 features two World Premieres:  a major new work written by Ross McHenry for improvising piano and the ASO featuring acclaimed Adelaide born, New York-based pianist Matthew Sheens. Born out of a longstanding musical relationship between McHenry and Sheens this music highlights Sheens incredible capacity as an improviser, paired with McHenry’s unique soundscape.  Also, a new symphonic work written by Matthew Sheens plus music from the Ross McHenry Trio featuring Matthew Sheens and Myele Manzanza.

Join us for a special night of ground-breaking inspirational improvisation.
