Unspoken: An Online Video-Series
Unspoken is Konzertprojekt's online video-series which is being released throughout November 2020! The series will digitally premiere four wonderfully contrasting compositions by Konzertprojekt members: Ben Robinson, Maddy Briggs, Rhys Little and Christine Pan. Each work shares the connection of being inspired by intimate, personal or 'unspoken' themes, and explores these ideas through one or two instruments. Set with the beautiful backdrop of St Stephen's Uniting Church on Macquarie Street, this online series features various friends of Konzertprojekt (see below for more details) and has been exquisitely captured by videographer Ruari Campbell. Be sure to follow Konzertprojekt's Facebook, Instagram and Youtube to hear these new pieces as they're released every Thursday throughout November, or watch the playlist below!

The Unspoken online series is Konzertprojekt's response to the current pandemic. Like many arts organisations, our plans for live performances in 2020 were suddenly cancelled and we have adapted to an online approach. Fortunately the fine arts industry has an impressive resilience, and we are so grateful to our many friends who have come together to create and premiere some brand new Australian music!
