Music: Rhye

24 February @ Chevron Gardens ·
Presented by Rhye ·

In a flurry of intoxicating soul pop, ambiguous imagery and
sensual music videos, Rhye’s emergence set the internet abuzz,
heralding the arrival of a mysterious artist with a spine-tingling
falsetto. With a penchant for creating deeply emotive soundscapes,
Rhye’s melancholic musings of love are underpinned by a shimmy of
glitter and a lushness as soft as silk. Come, be mesmerised.

Music: Deafheaven + Zeal & Ardor

22 February @ Chevron Gardens ·
Presented by Deafheaven + Zeal & Ardor ·

United by their sheer ferocity, Deafheaven and Zeal & Ardor join
forces for a dynamite double bill. Where Deafheaven are poised
on the edge of an emotional apocalypse, Zeal & Ardor blend African
American spirituals, blues and black metal with a menacingly
euphoric growl. With tortured shrieks and immersive guitar explosions,
Deafheaven’s music is not made for the everyday. Emerging from a
similar heavy rock kaleidoscope, Swiss-American Zeal & Ardor are
the sound of satanic spirituals – dark, raging and intensely
compelling. Do not miss this epic combination.

Music: Nothing But Thieves

9 February @ Chevron Gardens ·
Presented By Nothing But Thieves ·

Renowned for their blend of agitated but serious-minded guitar rock, Nothing But Thieves take inspiration from the greats, carving their own niche with the shapeshifting vocals of frontman Conor Mason.

Traversing the emotional landscape with an intensity that is their own, Nothing But Thieves tip their hat to Snow Patrol, The Killers and Biffy Clyro, while simultaneously creating a new sound that is equal parts passion and power.

ACO & Estonian Philharmonic Choir
Calendar, Choral, Music, Performing arts, Perth Festival

Music: Estonian Philharmonic Choir – Arvo Pärt & JS Bach

13 February @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by Australian Chamber Orchestra & Perth Festival ·

Richard Tognetti opens the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s 2019 Season with a
program that will reach celestial heights. The famed Estonian Philharmonic
Chamber Choir joins them in a celebration of Bach and Arvo Pärt. Ethereal and
otherworldly, this is music by two towering composers searching for the very core
of human meaning.

Bach’s sublime Lutheran motets interleave with Pärt’s mystical explorations of the
Orthodox faith, before reaching the climax of the program: Pärt’s Berliner Messe.

Fellow Estonian Galina Grigorjeva’s In Paradisum, with its joyous call on the
angels to lead souls into heaven, leads their own program into paradise, while
Peter Sculthorpe’s Djilile, inspired by Indigenous song, makes a resonant
Australian introduction to Pärt’s luminous Messe.

the Wanneroo Markets in the 1990s. Come along and be captivated at how Eli
Zagoria’s past influenced and shaped his work.
