Green Room: Music at The Lab


‘Classical music for the modern era’

Light Square’s new performance space The Lab ­– part of the arts and hospitality hub Light ­– is launching a regular classical music series that begins tonight with a performance by Slava and Sharon Grigoryan.

Titled Interlude, the series will see classical and acoustic musicians perform against an immersive digital backdrop in what The Lab’s head of programming, Anne Wiberg, describes as “classical music for the modern era”.

“Moving away from traditional performance spaces, this program will pair some of our finest classical artists with state-of-the-art technology and art,” she says. “We are excited by what is set to evolve here.”

Tonight’s performance will see guitar virtuoso Slava and former Australian String Quartet cellist Sharon perform against visuals created by Max Brading (see the repertoire here). Other upcoming concerts include “luscious string quartets and gentle electronica” by violinist Belinda Gehlert and friends (April 7), and The Ensembles (April 14), featuring alumni of the Adelaide Youth Orchestras.
