Hosted by Bronwyn Blaiklock, Chisholm St is an intimate foray into fascinating corners of classical music. This diverse series of concerts by regional musicians and spoken word performers gives you a rare glimpse into creative music-making, up close and personal.

Astor Piazzolla, the Argentine tango composer, revolutionised the traditional tango by incorporating elements of jazz and classical music. This program illuminates key works of his, including his most famous, Histoire du Tango arranged for flute and piano. Written in 1985, this work attempts to chart the evolution of the form at 30-year intervals – Bordello 1900; Cafe 1930; Nightclub 1960; and Modern-day Concert. Be ready for joyous, often sprightly interplay between the instruments and memorable themes, however, tango-dancing audience members hoping to hear anything vaguely danceable had better be very supple indeed.

Stay for refreshments afterwards, meet the performers – it’s included in the ticket – and enjoy the community at Chisholm St.
