#A night of unparalleled stargazing, and world-class chamber music under the evening glow of the Milky Way.

Inspired by the vast magnitude of the open outback night sky, and the traditional stories of the Bidjara people, this bespoke chamber music concert explored humankind’s long-held fascination with the cosmos.

Kate Miller-Heidke and William Barton, as well as renowned soloists Aunty Delmae Barton, Jess Hitchcock, Keir Nuttall, Samuel Pankhurst, Véronique Serret, Vanessa Tomlinson and Erik Griswold, performed at the Charleville Cosmos Centre with a program inspired by landscape, stargazing, cosmology and cultural heritage. 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been acknowledged as the world’s first astronomers, their ancient cultural knowledge of the sky embodied within the dreamtime stories, shared orally, ceremonially and through visual artworks. Inspired by Charleville’s unique astrological permutations, and dreamtime stories of the Bidjara people, Music for Stargazing also featured the world-premiere of a new composition by William Barton.

Music for Stargazing operated under a COVID-19 Safe Checklist.
