A weekend music meditation retreat at the Gawler Cancer Foundation in Yarra Junction will culminate with a concert by The Light Quartet on Sunday, 10 September.
Multi-instrumentalist Michael Johnson will be co-ordinating the Music and Mindfulness Weekend Meditation Retreat leading up to the concert, which is open to the public.
Michael has been using his harp to instil calm and promote health, creativity and entertainment for 26 years at the foundation and for 17 years has been resident harpist at the Royal Botanic Gardens.
The Light Quartet, an improvisational band with Michael on harp and piano, drummer David Jones, Guitarist Evripides Evripidou and violinist Mathew Arnold, has a reputation for producing extraordinarily beautiful sounds and textures.
“ … This music is so deeply moving and ethereal in its beauty … Johnson, Evripidou, Jones and Arnold contributes equal parts in musicality, spirituality and humanity to these works, leaving listeners totally transfixed … “ says 3PBS Melbourne’s Owen McKern.
Enjoy the magic of The Light Quartet at 2pm on Sunday, 10 September, at 55 Rayner Court, Yarra Junction. Bookings are through http://www.michaeljohnson.com.au/ticket.php.
