Join us for an unforgettable event featuring Joe Chindamo and Steve Vizard, brought to you by the Elder Conservatorium of Music, the Sia Furler Institute and the University of Adelaide. This is part of the innovative Creative Revolutionaries series of events.

In this unique personal and musical encounter, Gold Logie winning interviewer, writer and academic, Steve Vizard, interviews celebrated musical treasure, performer and composer, Joe Chindamo, about the art of creativity.

The evening will explore not only Chindamo's life, but his musical journey, his compositional work in theatre, film, live performance, across all genres from classical to orchestral, jazz to popular music, and in particular the idea of 'genre equality' and of a common creative gene inherent in seemingly disparate modes of music.

This special and rare occasion will feature illustrative performances by Joe and students from the Elder Conservatorium, and as expected, this celebration of 'open musical borders', will encompass jazz improvisation, one of Joe's classical compositions for string quartet, a duet with violinist Elizabeth Layton, Head of Strings & Classical Performance, and a song from Joe's and Steve's award winning one - woman theatrical show, Vigil (commissioned and premiered in 2016 by the Adelaide Cabaret Festival).
