A special concert will soon be held at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery by the Sally Marett Quartet featuring acclaimed bassist Brendan Clarke.
The free concert will be streamed live from the gallery on Saturday, August 8.
Sally Marett is a familiar name and hails from the Western Australian Performing Arts Academy (WAPPA). The career span of the former 'Home and Away' actor spans two decades.
In this quartet, she joins forces with bassist and national Jazz award winner Brendan Clarke, Lachlan Coventry on guitar, and Mark Sutton on drums.
"It is going to my first visit to Goulburn and I am excited to be playing at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. For the first time, I will be performing jazz on an online stream," she said.
"All of us play together regularly in Canberra and it's exciting to be sharing that with those who are unable to come and see our performances. It's exciting to be taking that to Goulburn and live streaming it too.
The event is being held at the Goulburn Regional Gallery in association with Hume Conservatorium and the Sydney Improvised Music Society (SIMA).
After a season of live music streams from the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale, the free space music series is now moving to the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery.
It's part of a state-wide initiative whereby regional galleries are staging live music streams for obvious reasons during the current pandemic.
"We were approached for the event and it would be lovely to go into that community and connect with new audiences. We look forward to it."
Several events have been cancelled and restrictions are in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
"It's an immensely challenging time for everybody and I think art will support and nurture us through this."
Paul Scott-Williams, CEO of Hume Conservatorium, feels "thrilled" to be a part of the unique opportunity "that brings metro audiences into the heart of our region through music".
Director Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, Gina Mobayed, said, "We truly believe that contemporary art and music pair beautifully to create special experiences for our communities."
