You may have heard about this film which attracted a lot of attention earlier this year, if you didn’t attend one of the sell out screenings.
Produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Tony Williams, this uplifting film about Steel City Strings celebrates the joy of music. It makes the perfect Christmas gift for music loving friends and family – although of course we’re a little biased.
Or you could just treat yourself.
‘It’s an extraordinary film, and Steel City Strings is an extraordinary orchestra. People are in for a huge treat.’ Richard Gill AO, conductor and Australia’s greatest music educator.
This 76 minute feature documentary takes the audience into the heart of chamber orchestra, Steel City Strings. It reveals the interaction and the stories of the players behind the music. Accompanied by their stunning music.
‘This exceptional film demonstrates the extraordinary way that a community can be brought together by the power of music. It reminds me of why I made music my career.’ Catherine Hewgill, principal cellist Sydney Symphony Orchestra
‘Tony Williams’ film demonstrates that music is our greatest form of expression and is our lifeblood.’ Andrew Ford OAM, host of ABC Radio National’s ‘The Music Show’
Most members of the orchestra teach music, from infants through to conservatorium level. The film highlights the important educational, social and neurological benefits of learning to play a musical instrument – so this DVD is a lovely gift for young families to encourage musical discovery.
