Festival of Tibet

QACI is pleased to support our Percussionist in Residence, acclaimed performer and composer Dr Michael Askill who will be running sound healing Tibetan Singing Bowl workshops throughout the 2017 Festival of Tibet.

QACI music students are also involved in this fabulous festival, performing at the Powerhouse for the “Songs of Freedom” concert being held Thursday 27 April, led by Dr Michael Askil.

This two part concert will share the songs which have inspired movements, exemplified a shift in consciousness, and given people hope in the face of monumental odds.

Tickets can be reserved at: http://brisbanepowerhouse.org/events/2017/04/27/songs-of-freedom-concert/. Following the concert QACI students and performers involved in the festival have been invited to attend performance talks on the Saturday 29th at 7:30pm.

To embed cross curricular learning initiatives and to support our continued philosophy in collaborative approaches to teaching and learning, we have a group of QACI Film students working closely with Tenzin Choegyl Tibetan Festival Director, also attending the festival to assist in the filming and interviewing of participants taking part. We are proud of the diversity and opportunities for both our film and music students to not only engage in a professional performance – both in setting and performing but also in their engaging with issues of Global Importance by becoming aware of Tibetan culture.
