'Show Off'

Redland Performing Arts Complex, Middle St., Cleveland, QLD

And I'm off to another gig for Redland's Creative Alliance, at the Redland Performing Arts Complex art wall, this year entitled 'Show Off'. I'll be doing my thing on keyboard, and I'll be joined by a line-up of other local performers. These gigs are always a good night...except this time I'll be a bit busier than usual...behind the keyboard...instead of enjoying the wine!

Figurative Exhibition - Gala Opening Night

And we're back at RQAS for another solo gig of improvised piano. If you enjoy melodic neo-classical music in the style of Einaudi Ludovico and Tony O'Connor, then come along and experience two art forms at a free event for the exhibition opening (with the inimitable Francis Giacco judging). As for previous opening nights, this is likely to be a standing room only event with some stunning works on display. That's a sneak peek of one of Scott Breton's amazing works in the background!
