Catherine and her friends – Digital concert to support the arts and artists
With $ 1.4 million raised for Australian musicians and arts workers in 2020, the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall (MDCH) brings its digital live streaming platform to Sydney to support the government’s recent COVID restrictions of New South Wales. 100% of ticket sales go directly to artists, supporting them in their greatest need.
Broadcast live worldwide from The Concourse Chatswood in Chatswood this Friday, July 16, the funny diva CATHERINE ALCORN will give an exhilarating live concert with some special guests from the worlds of theater, film and opera.
Here we are again, a year later, but this time with no Job Keeper, Seeker or any immediate support, so it looks like we need to take matters into our own hands! I am so excited to be working with Melbourne Digital Concert Hall to present their first live cabaret comedy concert. I hope Australia will come behind us Sydney artists this week and show the same support as in 2020. We need it more than ever! I can promise an evening of unbridled energy, comedy, music and song.
Alcorn is an award-winning, live-streaming artist who designed and delivered The Reservoir Room during Australia’s first lockdown of 2020. She will be ably assisted by drag royalty, VERUSHKA DARLING for that little (big) extra touch of glam, comedy and, of course, brotherhood.
Joining Catherine on stage are performers from Sydney who were immediately hit by the lockdown and face months to come with no income.
Hamilton star JASON ARROW will make his first appearance on stage after being dismissed without pay by the multi-million dollar production when the Sydney Lyric closed on June 25.
Helpmann and Green Room Award and Mezzo Soprano, JACQUI DARK, whose most recent Covid cancellation was Anna Karenina for The Australian Ballet the day before their opening, will dazzle when she treads the boards of the Concourse to perform the classic-defying genre / contemporary mashups.
Music icon, Helpmann Award winner and iOTA screen god (Mad Max: Fury Road, Smoke and Mirrors) completes the stellar lineup.
Special surprise guest, viral internet sensation and Secrets of Africa jewelry designer, MANDY.
Location: THE COMPETITION THEATER
