EARTHBeat is a concert presented by Common Ground Exhibitions & Research, featuring Ecopella acapella choir, and Shortis and Simpson, celebrating our amazing country as it calls us to care for its future.

Established by Miguel Heatwole in Sydney in 1988, the environmental choir Ecopella sings about the beauty of our world and the struggle to protect it from exploitation and destruction, all with a sense of fun and an abundance of positive and satirical messages.

In their 17 years of living in the region, Shortis and Simpson have built an extensive repertoire of original compositions honouring the power of nature and celebrating places in the land, from songs with local references to more global environmental issues, and with plenty of satire.

And the two acts will combine in a moving finale.

Saturday October, 8:00pm, $30/$25 concession, tickets available at
