2021 UQ Art Museum Concert Series

The School of Music in 2021 will collaborate with the UQ Art Museum to present concerts that feature emerging musical genres from staff, students and affiliate ensembles.

The series fosters an ongoing partnership between our two prestigious institutions and supports interdisciplinary projects within the arts at UQ. Ensembles from the UQ School of Music will compliment exhibitions, with concerts featuring lecturers and students working in the genres of electro-acoustics, structured improvisation, electronic dance music, and contemporary classical music.

SignWaves, a collective of flautists from The University of Queensland, will present Synchronous Vibrations in conjunction with the UQ Art Museum. The program brings a diverse range of flute repertoire into the vibrant acoustic space of the museum. The juxtaposition of music and visual arts offers an experience that entrances in multiple senses. There will be a range of works for different combinations of flutes framed within linked episodic atmospheric compositions based on bird song by UQ's own flautist/composer, Monash Lal.
