Join internationally renowned Australian composer and musician Elena Kats-Chernin AO at special intimate concert to celebrate her friend Wendy Sharpe’s exhibition Ghosts.

This is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into these two creative women, in an evening of musical and artistic reverie. Elena will play a program of her music particularly resonating with Wendy’s exhibition. Together both artist and composer will speak about their practices and the connections in their work.

Elena Kats-Chernin AO is one of the most cosmopolitan composers working today, having reached millions of listeners worldwide through her prolific catalogue of works for theatre, ballet, orchestra, and chamber ensemble. Her dramatically vivid music communicates a mixture of light-heartedness and heavy melancholy, combining strong rhythmic figures with elements of cabaret, tango, ragtime, and klezmer.

Wendy Sharpe is one of Australia’s most acclaimed and prolific figurative painters and is the featured artist in the solo exhibition Ghosts at Mosman Art Gallery. Her 2017 portrait painting of Elena Kats-Chernin The Witching Hour, commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery of Australia has inspired this event.

Mosman Art Gallery will be open from 6pm for exhibition viewing prior to concert. The Grand Hall doors will open at 7.00pm.

Includes a glass of sparkling wine on arrival.
