Yarra City Arts is extremely excited to support this upcoming performance by Genesis Baroque at the Twilight Markets in Richmond partnership with Belgium Avenue House.

Genesis Baroque is a Melbourne-based period chamber orchestra comprising some of Australia’s finest historically informed performers, and aims to explore the spontaneity, imagination, and richness of music from the 17th and 18th centuries through its intimate concerts at the Abbotsford Convent and regional performances across Victoria. Genesis Baroque collaborates with performers and other artists based locally, interstate and overseas, and has a particular focus on providing a platform for local and expatriate Australian musicians. The ensemble released its critically acclaimed first studio album of Arcangelo Corelli’s Concerti Grossi Opus 6 via ABC Classic in August 2020, debuting as the highest selling Australian album on the ARIA classical album charts.

Genesis Baroque musicians will be performing at the Monthly Twilight Market at the Gathering Place, Belgium Ave, Richmond. Musicians will be performing between 3:30-4:30pm for residents of the North Richmond Housing Estate and local community as part of the festivities run by Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood House.

Lifting Spirits' Community Market at the North Richmond housing estate run by Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood Houses, engage residents in cooking, creating, and celebrating their food, skills, cultures, and relationships. The markets are open to the broader community and help to combat loneliness and isolation (particularly re-emerging from COVID-19 lockdowns), engender a stronger sense of identity within the broader community, and destigmatise the community housing estates.

Entry Free.

This project is supported by a Yarra City Council Annual Arts and Culture Grant.
