Qwire in the Park
Free Qwire Concert and Picnic in the Park
Saturday 28 November 2020.
Glebe Park, 12noon–2.00 pm
“Canberra Qwire, Proudly LGBTIQ+, is very happy to be able to sing for the public this year”, said the Convenor, Anne-Marie Delahunt. “It's been a hard year but we stay strong and we continue to support each other in this time of difficulty.”
‘Qwire in the Park’ is a free concert in a relaxing picnic setting out in Glebe Park, which has hosted many of Canberra’s cultural activities celebrating the beauty of diversity that enriches our society.
Karen Wilden, Musical Director, said, “Qwire chose the theme ‘Nature’ for 2020 to acknowledge the UN International year of Plant Health, before bushfires and COVID-19 turned the world upside down. It turns out our songs speak not just to the fragility and resilience of nature, but also of people.
Our communities, our families and friends. And 2020 has given inspiration to our Assistant Musical Director, Jenny Sawer, who has composed ‘State of Alert’, a powerful and moving song about the bushfires that devastated our region. ‘Qwire in the Park’ is an opportunity for us to share the strength and hope that we find through music, and to celebrate with our wonderful Canberra community.”
The free concert is on Saturday 28 November 2020 at 12.00pm, and is a Covid-safe event. Audience / picnickers are requested to register in advance.
