Venue Change

Due to some poor weather forecast this Thursday night the performance will now be staged at Fremantle Town Hall – not Fremantle Arts Centre. All times and the date remain the same – doors open 6pm, performance starts 7pm. Fremantle Town Hall is located at 8 William St.

Parking is available at the Kings Square Carpark. Limited street parking is also available around the venue.

Please note that due to the venue change, we will no longer be offering woodfired pizzas as we do at FAC, so if you had intended on having dinner beforehand please do so in Fremantle. We will be running a bar at the Town Hall.

Parallel Resonance will be a spirited night of music for marimba, vibraphone, guitar and percussion influenced by the energetic rhythms and harmonies of flamenco, tango and jazz. The program will feature joyful instrumental music from a diverse range of composers including Rodrigo y Gabriela, Julia Wolfe, Emmanuel Séjourné as well as lesser known gems from Joe Duddell, Terry Riley, Robert Davidson, Olga Amelkina-Vera and more.

The UWA Conservatorium of Music is one of Australia’s leading music performance schools. Piñata Percussion is the Conservatorium’s virtuosic ensemble of percussion students, led by award-winning musician Dr Louise Devenish. The UWA Guitar Studio is directed by American artist Dr Jonathan Fitzgerald, performing frequently throughout WA and around Australia.
