Drawn in

Jorge Bontes and Cicilia Kemezys

Sunday 9 May 2021
1:00 – 3:00pm AEDT

Ticketed entry required - free

Limited capacity. Ticketed entry is in place for all visits to the Gallery. Your booking lets you wander through all the galley spaces. Phew! No need to worry about what you want to see!

Draw while listening to guitarist singer Jorge Bontes and jazz flautist Cicilia Kemezys. This duo romance listeners with both lively and softly intimate renditions of Latin American folk and favourites. Their repertoire features well known pieces from many Latin America music genres and some politically influenced works by Victor Jara and Silvio Rodriguez. Be swept away in the moment and let colour become your instruments, line become your melody and create your own visual composition.

All materials provided; for all ages and abilities.
