The Great Southern

Welcome to the Great Southern program, blending gems from around the world with the distinctive culture of the south. There is something for everyone, from the finest in international chamber music to toe-tapping world music in Borden, while Noongar Culture will be the catalyst for a gathering of weavers from different nations. It is a proud reflection of your community and I invite you to be part of it.

Many thanks to our partners in the Great Southern and to Program Manager Rod Vervest, who make this possible.

-Shelagh Magadza, Artistic Director
