Camerata has a reputation for innovation and adventurous programming. Camerata, Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will be Museum of Brisbane’s newest artist in residence. During their residency at the Museum they will be working on creating a unique, promenade performance of new work composed as part of Life in Irons: Brisbane’s Convict Stories.

Artist in Residence: Camerata

Camerata will be 2018 Artists-in-Residence at the Museum of Brisbane in an innovative partnership where Camerata’s players inhabit the gallery, responding through music to a world premiere exhibition. The residency culminates in a performance where museum visitors have the opportunity to hear the ensemble perform the outcomes of their research amongst the objects that inspired them.

At the end of their residency Camerata will showcase A place in time. It will be the first time they bring motion and sound to an otherwise inanimate object, imbuing the history-laden objects in Life in Irons, so full of emotion, drama and story with an aural narrative.

Designed to be beautifully intimate, audiences will experience short concert promenade performances in front of the objects that inspired the composition during Camerata’s month-long artist residency at Museum of Brisbane.

Camerata’s residency will take place in the Gallery and The Studio on the following dates; 15 Jun, 22 Jun, 6 Jul, 13 Jul, 20 Jul, 27 Jul, 3 Aug, 24 Aug & 31 Aug.

The Artist-in-Residence Program is supported by Mr Tim Fairfax AC and Museum of Brisbane donors.
