Phoenix Collective is a dynamic ensemble showcasing classical music with a uniquely Australian edge. Bringing together some of Australia’s most accomplished musicians, the exclusive Phoenix Collective Sunday Sessions will feature the work of award-winning contemporary and classical composers from Elvis Costello to Steve Reich, in the intimacy of the Zenith Theatre.

The musical masterpieces of Japanese cult animation giant, Studio Ghibli, blend fantasy and reality and highlight growth and the importance of nature. Renowned for their empathy for human frailty, they provide a re-energising reminder of our need for imaginative, uplifting journeys. Tracks from 10 different movies including Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Totoro will be performed.
