Arts Wednesday 5 August 2020
At 10:40 am, historian Laila Ellmoos joins us for Part 6, the final part of Developing Sydney and in this last episode Laila talks about fire and the impact it had on Sydney’s development.
Developing Sydney is the title of an exhibition Laila was curating at Customs House opening late March 2020. This did not go ahead. However, the exhibition is now online at: https://www.sydneycustomshouse.com.au/visit/exhibitions-events
The exhibition and the series examines Sydney 1900 – 1920 through the archives of photographs in council’s collection. It also marks a new and easier way for us to access the archives. This is the link: https://archives.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au
My special guest at 11:00 am is Nick Russoniello, classical saxophonist. Hear the history of this instrument and the sounds of the four saxophones Nick brought into the studio.
Music is, as you would expect, saxophone!
I look forward to your company.
