As fall approaches, I will have the grand opportunity, thanks to The Cultureist and Northern Territory, Australia, to cover the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, as they perform before one of Australia’s most recognizable landmarks. Ayer’s Rock, an often glowing inselberg also known as Uluru, will for a weekend serve as backdrop for the sounds of Verdi, interpreted in part by Australia’s soprano Emma Matthews and tenor James Egglestone, among others.
The excursion will also include exploration of Aboriginal history and art, Alice Springs, Darwin, Kakadu National Park, and the food, landscapes, natural history and culture of Australia’s Outback. And I’ll do my best not to smuggle a wallaby back home, on the off chance I see one.
As the the date approaches, I’ll be increasingly present on the social media below, posting and tweeting about the experience. I encourage you to follow the hashtags and tags of your favorite social media flavor, and explore them, particularly The Cultureist.
Stay tuned as the stories evolve and take form…
