Floriade 2016 Rhythm & Blooms Festival

Floriade 2016 Rhythm & Blooms Festival

Celebrating Canberra's New and Emerging Talent on Commonwealth Park's Stage 88

Pack a picnic, invite a friend along and spend your lunchtime with two weeks of free hour-long concerts hosted by ANU School of Music in partnership with Floriade. Aired live by ArtSoundFM, the Rhythm & Blooms Festival series weaves music among the flowers: from classical to pop, experimental repetoire to musical theatre, jazz to contemporary compositions. Rhythm & Blooms 2016 features the best and brightest new musical talent in Canberra. Join us as ANU School of Music staff, students and alumni and local talent perform in the picturesque outdoor setting of Commonwealth Park.
