Pink Floyd and furry critters, together at last.
If all this talk of climate change is starting to freak you out (as it should), The Earth Show is here to keep you optimistic through some good ol’ rock and mesmerising classical music.
Performed by Aussie musician Matthew Fagan and his band, the concert will feature a selection of pieces from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Alan Griffiths and Fagan himself. What’s more, a trio of violin, cello and piano will also perform the compositions of Alan Griffiths in a separate section. The performances will be accompanied by a series of visual projections that celebrate the planet’s biodiversity, including clips sourced from Parks Victoria, Extinction Rebellion and the Australian Antarctic Division among others.
Prior to the performance, speakers from Zoos Victoria, the Australian National University and the Victorian National Parks Association and more will come together for a symposium that discusses the importance of preserving and restoring ecosystems. Earlier on in the day at Deakin Edge, Fagan will also be performing the Ritual Fire Dance as part of El Vito Chamber Group.
