with the Mitchell Chamber Orchestra
Prowling the Australian scene, Western Sydney artist L-FRESH The LION has quickly become renowned for his powerful presence, inspiring live shows and thought-provoking lyricism. His organic amalgam of world-class music and social activism has seen him seamlessly segue from underground events and ciphers to national tours and major festivals, the natural ascent of an MC with an abundance of purpose and self-belief.
Many musicians lay claim to being unique, but inspired by hip hop music from the mid-‘90s and early-2000s, and a deep love and respect for his own cultural and ancestral roots which trace back to the Sikhs from Punjab, India, L-FRESH is truly an artist like no other.
The Mitchell Chamber Orchestra is the flagship ensemble of the Mitchell Conservatorium Chamber Music Academy. Comprising a core of MitCon professional staff members and advanced students, the orchestra partners with guest artists in traditional, and innovative, ways from across a broad range of professional relationships. Past collaborations include the orchestra’s inaugural outing as part of the Touchstones project with The Andrew Robson Quartet and Richard Gill in 2014, and the 2015 presentation with international concert pianist Avan Yu at BMEC. The MCO is particularly excited to see the L-FRESH the LION initiative come to fruition and hope you enjoy the evening as much as we have enjoyed its preparation.
