Ross McHenry Trio presents the Outsiders at Melbourne Recital Centre

  • Melbourne Recital Centre 31 Sturt Street Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)


The Outsiders, written by Ross McHenry, brings together three leading musicians; Ross McHenry (bass), Myele Manzanza (drums) and Matthew Sheens (piano)

The trio perform an extended suite of new music that explores the idea of a collision between geography and cultural identity.

A conflict between a world where we have equal access to information but not equal access to opportunity. A world where geography, as much as we deny it, still defines how our work interacts with the world around us. A musical attempt to paint a picture of our emotional experience as we navigate the world as outsiders, this series of ambitious new works is about exploring who we are based on the premise that no matter where we reside, we cannot deny where we are from.
