The Impossible Orchestra

Last night (more like very early this morning) I attended the Impossible Orchestra's 24 hour concert.  In an attempt to raise awareness for CareAware, the orchestra continuously plays without stopping for 24 hours (as the title suggests...).

If you're wondering how, there is a pool of musicians that decides how long they will play.  After speaking with a musician after the show, she told us that she would be playing in three 'slots' (3x3hours).  The maximum that any member of the orchestra can play for is 4 slots.  As if three isn't tiring enough already...

The show itself is FREE, yes no catch, and will end at 5pm today afternoon (Sunday 28th October).  If you've got some free time, I highly recommend you check it out.  I attended the 11pm-2am performance, but I'm sure the ones today will be much easier to stay awake in...

A great sound and an opportunity to see the newly renovated Hamer Hall for FREE.  It certainly doesn't happen every day...
