Catherine and Friends – Digital concert to support the arts and artists

With $1.4 million raised for Australian musicians and Arts sector workers in 2020, Melbourne Digital Concert Hall (MDCH) brings their digital live-streaming platform to Sydney in support of NSW Government’s recent COVID restrictions. 100% of ticket sales goes direct to the artists, supporting them in their greatest time of need.

Streamed live to the world from Chatswood’s The Concourse Chatswood this Friday, 16th July, funny diva CATHERINE ALCORN will perform an exhilarating live concert with a few special guests from the Theatre, Film and Opera world popping by.

Catherine Alcorn:

Here we are again, a year later, but this time without Job keeper, Seeker or any immediate support so it seems we need to take matters into our own fabulous hands! I’m truly delighted to be working with Melbourne Digital Concert Hall to present their first comedy cabaret live stream concert. I hope Australia gets behind us Sydney artists this week and show the same support it did in 2020. We need it more than ever! I can promise an evening of unbridled energy, comedy, music and song.

Alcorn is an award-winning artist and no stranger to live-streaming having conceived and delivered The Reservoir Room during Australia’s first lockdown of 2020. She will be ably as-sisted by drag royalty, VERUSHKA DARLING for a little (big) touch of extra glam, comedy and, of course, sisterhood.

Joining Catherine on stage are Sydney artists who have been immediately impacted by the lockdown and face months ahead with no income.

Star of Hamilton, JASON ARROW will make his first appearance on stage after being stood down without pay by the multi-million dollar production when the Sydney Lyric closed its doors on June 25.

Helpmann and Green Room Award winner and Mezzo Soprano, JACQUI DARK, whose most recent Covid-cancellation was Anna Karenina for The Australian Ballet on the day before they were due to open will dazzle when she treads the Concourse boards to perform genre defying classic/contemporary mashups.

Music icon, Helpmann Award winner and screen god iOTA(Mad Max: Fury Road, Smoke and Mirrors) completes the stellar line-up.

Special surprise guest viral internet sensation and Secrets of Africa jewellery designer, MANDY.
