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 100 local musicians bring their skills to the musical narrative.
Dean composed the work whilst an artist-in-residence 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.
Composer/Songwriter: Dean Stevenson
Performers from the North West Coast
