OVERVIEW

A musical voyage across the seas from Scotland and Finland to Australia, by way of watery depths, epic journeys, maritime disasters, and island magic between.

In music both ancient and new, Behold – the Sea! evokes the mystery and majesty of the ocean, and the courage and tenacity of those who venture out across its vast expanses.

Venue:
Verbruggen Hall - Sydney Conservatorium of Music
Macquarie Street, Sydney View Map
