Alessandra Garossi, who is no stranger to Southern Highland audiences, returns to The Rose Room celebrating her combined love of music and literature, the inspiration for her unique theatrical concept: A Marriage of Poesie and Music.
Robert Davidson’s original music weaves through the words of Dylan Thomas, e.e.cummings, Judith Wright and others, with improvisations by Alessandra Garosi and Adam Simmons, and mood-setting interludes by Peter Sculthorpe and May Howlett.
Equally comfortable in contemporary classical, jazz and fusion styles, Alessandra and Adam met at the “Alternative” Festival in Prague in 2009, and have continued to work together in both hemispheres since then, whenever possible.
Jane, an Australian actress, and Alessandra, met in 1985 when Alessandra was studying with Sonya Hanke at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music; they relish the opportunity to work together at last in what promises to be a unique performance.
The best route by car travelling south from Bowral is:

The Rose Room has a Steinway piano available, seating for 70 guests and up to 8 performers.
Janet can also prepare a sumptuous afternoon tea for guests and artists.
