Held on the first Wednesday of each month, Smith’s Alternative warmly invites all classically trained musicians, of all levels, of all ages, to come along to CLASSICAL CAPERS and put your hand up on the night to sing or play the instrument of your choice. Ensembles are also most welcome.
This month, our special guests are Tobias Cole and singers from his choirs, ANU Vocal Fry and ANU Chamber Choir. Tobias will start with some songs, following which he’ll attempt to get the audience to learn and sing some songs. Then choir members will do some solos, followed by the open mic with everyone welcome to do a piece or two.
Every now and then, good quality piano players sit down at Canberra's outdoor piano at Smith's and bless us with some sweet music. Of course, sometimes, it's drunken chopsticks, which we're not sick of in the least. But on many occasions, we hear magic, and we want to invite that magic inside, and give people who may not normally perform a warm and welcoming platform to bless us with their talents.
Classical Capers is also an excellent opportunity for students to hop up on the stage and play anything from Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to a virtuosic concerto.
