St. Paul's Cathedral Bendigo | 6 Myers Street VIC 3550

A thought can learn to fly if you give it wings. This concert of inspirational and aspirational music examines the nature of human achievement and celebrates the remarkable things that we are capable of as people when we truly put our mind to something.

This program also draws inspiration from the night sky, including music conceived by simply looking up and reaching for the stars. An unmissable experience in the lead-up to the ABCI's 2024 tour of New Zealand featuring music by Trans-Tasman composers.

  • Doors open at 2:30pm, concert starts at 3:00pm sharp. This performance has one interval of 15 minutes. Latecomers will not be permitted until a suitable break in the performance.
  • No photography or videographers permitted, audience members should note this performance is being recorded.
  • Our repeat Melbourne performance will also be live-streamed via Australian Digital Concert Hall. For more information and digital ticket access available world-wide, please see the ADCH website.
