Two local orchestras will take to the stage at Lebowskis showcasing music from local composers and performers.  

5:15pm - Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde

Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde is an inclusive world music ensemble based in Northcote. We support Darebin-based musicians in developing musicianship and performance skills, and promote increased cultural awareness in the community through performances of music from different regions with particular emphasis on the Balkans, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. We support local composers and performers by providing opportunities for the development and public performance of new works.

6:15pm - Squakestra

Squawkestra, a Northcote based orchestra, will be playing music they have learned through a recent workshops series with local composer Luke Serrano. Squawkestra's performance at Lebowskis includes Serrano's original and arranged works as well as music they have learned while working with other Melbourne based composers throughout 2018. 

Squawkestra is an orchestra where glorious sounds and harmonious playing is strongly encouraged but squawks are welcome. The name, Squawkestra, encourages open membership to all players, especially beginning and returning players but as an ensemble we do not shy away from artistry and creative ambition! By contrast, every performance is an exciting journey of learning for every player. The lower the expectation, the higher the potential. We look forward to sharing the stage with fellow Northcote orchestra members from The Ork AKA Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde!

This performance will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri tribe of the Kulin nation, and we pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
