Event Details

From the underwater wonder of the great barrier reef to the dancing lights in the northern sky, the earth has inspired centuries of stories, art, and awe. Our fascination with the wonders of the world continue, with modern voyagers making pilgrimages to see the earth’s most marvelous sights with their own eyes. In this concert, the Spectrum composers turn to the natural world as a muse to inspire new works that celebrate the beauty and preservation of our planet. Seven new pieces by the Spectrum composers explore the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, performed by eclectic jazz/world musicians So Long Seven.

“So Long Seven is an audible garden where you didn’t realize you needed to escape to until you are there surrounded by the flora and fauna that is, Neil Hendry –guitar, William Lamoureux – violin Ravi Naimpally - tabla, and Tim Posgate- banjo. So Long Seven creates space for self-reflection while enlivening and invigorating you. It challenges the conventional ideas of the boundaries and parameters that music industry categories impose. It is jazzy, funky and derives from various continents while not being shepherded into any particular place or flavour. In this respect, SL7 teaches us about bridging cultures without appropriating, seeing ourselves and our limitations as our own making while rediscovering the joy of music.” http://www.solongseven.com/
