Sandringham Roving Choral Concert
The Sandringham station platform, the Sandringham Uniting Church, All Souls Anglican Church and the Sandy Beach Community Centre were all used as venues for a roving choral concert on March 6, 1988. Unfortunately no recordings of this concert were made.
For 30 years, the concerts of Astra Chamber Music Society have ranged around Melbourne’s architectural environment. Each concert has had a site-specific design that takes advantage of the marvellous visual qualities, spatial possibilities, and acoustic personality of each building. The music, in turn, contributes a new quality to the perception of the buildings, now experienced by audiences as a sounding space - an area where cultural issues from music’s history are traversed, and new ideas in Australian composition are explored.
