Flutation Australia shared Twilight Musical Dialogues with Sally Walker's post.

Introducing the second instalment of the Twilight Musical Dialogues series for 2018.
Rachel Scott (cello) will join Sally Walker (flute) on stage in what will be the most intimate concert yet, "Bach in the Dark".
Works by JS Bach, his relatives and his admirers.
"Bach in the Dark is a time when you can be ‘in the moment’ with the performers. It’s a time when you can forget about the phone bill, or the shopping, or the dire state of Australian politics and simply listen" - Rachel Scott.

Make sure to pre-purchase your tickets to not miss this fabulous concert!
