In Transit Emily Granger harp

Inspired by her life as an American artist living in Australia, Emily Granger performs contemporary works that unearth the breadth and beauty of harp music from the two countries. From Australia, much-loved composers Elena Kats-Chernin and Ross Edwards feature with exciting emerging voices. Equally breath taking are works by American luminaries Libby Larsen, Augusta Read Thomas and Robert Patterson. With themes of travel and isolation; serenity and solitude; this music paints a vivid portrait of an artist’s life in transit between opposite sides of the globe. Rich in imagination and overflowing with stories, this is a chance to observe Emily’s artistry like you’ve never heard it before.
