Facing North – Burnie

The Next Generation

About

Following on from the successful Ten Days On The Island performance earlier this year, Facing North: The Next Generation will feature local junior musicians.

Facing North is an ambitious community project that takes the character, people, history and landscapes of the Cradle Coast and turns them into music.

Under the tutelage of exceptional Tasmanian composer songwriter Dean Stevenson, over 200 local musicians bring their skills to the musical narrative.

Dean composed the work whilst artist in residency in the stirring surrounds of the Cradle Coast. Over many months he has been working with musicians and choristers of all ages and abilities from local schools, bands, orchestras and choirs, all of whom have embraced the opportunity and the process.

This flagship community performance is proof that in a region where high calibre touring music is limited, the locals can make it themselves, on a grand scale.
