Phoenix Collective showcases classical music with a uniquely Australian edge. Bringing together some of Australia’s most accomplished and high-profile musicians in a riveting recital series, the Phoenix Collective concerts will offer a range of exciting ensembles and genres set in the intimate surrounds of the Dining Room.
This performance, ‘Knife in the Boot’, features the legend that is Maggie Ferguson, founder of TangoOz. With Maggie on bandoneon, Edward Neeman on piano, Isabella Brown on Double Bass and Phoenix Collective director and violinist Dan Russell; the ensemble will explore early and traditional works from the birthplace of tango, Buenos Aires, and works by the father of nuevo tango, Astor Piazzolla.

All performed with a sense of intimacy, engaging stage presence and vivid musicality. Phoenix Collective don’t just play the music, they tell the story. It’s about bringing people together through music, people of all ages and walks of life with their unique style of classical music.
