A night of poetry and music for Barry Jones’ birthday

*SOLD OUT*

The October birthday of one of Australia’s most remarkable men, Dr. Barry Jones AC, has also become a reason for us to indulge in an evening of music and poetry. An extraordinarily erudite man of letters, you have only to dip into his most recent book The Shock of Recognition, to be both astounded and entranced by the breadth of his knowledge, and the extent of his enthusiasms.

So this 84th birthday will celebrate his passion for music with the premiere of an especially commissioned string quartet, by Stuart Greenbaum, performed by the Flinders Quartet. And in honour of Barry’s equal passion for poetry, some of the great actors who have appeared at fortyfivedownstairs will read their choice of poetry in his honour. Readers include Helen Morse, Jillian Murray, Paul English, Rhys McConnochie and John Stanton.
