Fremantle Festival 2016 presents, Race Against Time

Another example of what a wonderfully diverse Fremantle Festival is at the Fremantle Town Hall on Sunday night at 7pm will be Race Against Time.

It presents the poignant times and moving music of a little known Great War soldier composer: Australian Frederick Septimus Kelly. A gold medal Olympian rower, awarded soldier, renowned pianist and brilliant composer – this performance will tell the story of how Kelly persisted with his composing before meeting his demise on the Somme.

Letters and diaries sensitively woven with the sublime music Kelly composed at war will be presented at the Fremantle Town Hall at this Western Australian exclusive event. With music performed by ARIA award-winning pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska, soprano Louise Page, mezzo soprano Christina Wilson and Artistic Director of the Gallipoli Symphony, Christopher Latham, the performance expresses the meaning and a narration of life under fire. Narrations by Carrillo Gantner AO.

Presented in conjunction with the WA album launch of Kelly’s music by ABC Classics / Universal.

Doors open: 6pm. Show starts: 7pm
