Booked my ticket to see the show at Frankston on Thursday night, - really looking forward to it. The little clips of music have been wonderful, and I am so impressed with the initiative of making and distributing a live performance as a cinema experience. Not sure how many of the good people of Frankston will be joining me, but I expect a select and distinguished gathering. I haven't noticed any publicity here. A radio ad on select stations might have been a good idea, but think this is less of a commercial venture than an artistic exhibition.
Love the look of the tracklisting.
Certainly helps with the disappointment of the cancelled Melbourne show last year, but I'm over that disappointment, was happy with the explanation and apology, and ever hopeful of a live performance in Australia someday.

It does seem strange we are getting to see this 2 weeks ahead of the UK. Ten hours would be easily explained. Still, we deserve it! Don't think I have ever been so excited about a trip to the cinema, feels more like I'm heading off to a concert, better not applaud too enthusiastically though!
PS Peter, if your reading, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra â€“ just top class, and Melbourne Concert Hall -great acoustics, just a couple of facts to ponder.
PPS Some pretty good orchestras and venues in the rest of Australia too. I could even be tempted to head to Sydney if you wanted to check out the opera house.
