A distinctive cultural experience in Australia’s capital in Spring begins on Friday September 21st at The Street Theatre when legendary Australian flutist Jane Rutters hosts and performs at the first of three Salons: Flute Spritis and the Seasons, followed by Composers in Exile and I Love Paris. Entertainment has been carefully crafted by Rutter, presenting iconic Australian artists in concert followed by a medley of thought, inquiry and convivial discussion.
Jane Rutter says, “The Street is perfect for this idea as the audience will have the opportunity to chat and have a drink with the performers after the show. I’m very ‘mein host’ when I perform - I like all my concerts to feel up close and personal whether it be for an audience of 100,000 or 100 people”
