WELCOME

The seasonal changes of nature remind us that there are forces at work in the universe that are infinitely larger and more complex than ourselves. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a timely affirmation that we must learn to listen to nature once again, and to surrender whatever grand plans we may have had for the future to the natural current of time and life.

With international border restrictions still in place, it will be some time before we are able to present artists from overseas. The months of silence in the concert hall have precipitated several changes to the way we release our cultural program. Our annual season launch has been replaced by four quarterly releases, and our traditional series-based programming has been given a more organic, flexible architecture, like nature itself.

In Summer–Autumn, we showcase some of Australia’s most extraordinary creative minds more intimately than ever before: current social distancing requirements mean that reduced capacities are likely to be in place for each event. We remain optimistic that, before too long, these restrictions will ease. As always, we will keep you informed through our newsletters. To offset some of the demand for tickets, we’ve negotiated additional performances for many of these events, which we will announce as required.

It is our great pleasure to invite you back to UKARIA to experience once more the rejuvenating force of live music in nature.

AUTUMN


'Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.'

– Robert Frost (1874–1963)
