Claire Edwardes, toy glockenspiel

HI HAT AND ME
SOLO

Premiering in 2017, Macedon Music & Geelong Grammar School. Enter the weird and wonderful world of percussion through the remarkable talents of Australia’s own sorceress of percussion, Claire Edwardes. Hitting, scraping, shaking and finding intriguing sound in everything from clay flower pots to hi hats, glass bottles to bathroom tiles, Claire’s program features a new work by her alongside an arrangement of Mozart’s 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' for glockenspiel and a theatrical solo for maracas and electronics. Come and find out how to play a waterphone and be transported by this aural feast! Works by Alvarez, Edwardes, Shlomowitz, Mozart, Rzewski, Stockhausen, Cangelosi and Smetanin.

“Her absolute mastery of all things percussion was truly spectacular to watch...The performance was deservedly met with a standing ovation.”  Limelight Magazine, July 2015
