The Land of the Long White Cloud: Gigs at Grainger 2
Adam Page - Curator, saxophones & flute
Hamish McKeich - Conductor
New Zealand or Aotearoa, literally meaning ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’, has captivated Adam Page since his first visit in 2002. He recently returned from living in Wellington for three years and has continued to be inspired by the geographical beauty and artistic vibrancy of the country. Gigs at Grainger 2features original works created and performed by Page with the ASO in honour of the wonderful country and some of the beautiful humans that live there.
This concert will also feature the South Australian Premiere of Omnifenix - a concerto for saxophone and jazz drums written by NZ composer John Psathas for the late saxophonist Michael Brecker. To round out the Trans-Tasman experience, the ASO will be led by New Zealand conductor, Hamish McKeich.
