I am incredibly excited to announce that Grace Kim of Mountain Concerts has produced a musical version of Leonard the Lyrebird to be premiered at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains. Composer Ian Munro will narrate while Grace Kim will play the piano, Teije Hylkema, cello, and Philip Green, clarinet. The illustrations will also be a part of the production. The first performance on the 23rd of Feb will include a pre concert Q&A with Ian Munro and author Jodie McLeod. Two following performances in the Rainforest Room on the 24th will be down in the Jamison Valley via the world’s steepest railway and back up via the Scenic Cableway. Unlimited access to Scenic World on the day is included in the ticket price. Currently there are only these 3 performances scheduled so to avoid disappointment book asap through: ww.scenicworld.com.au/event/world-premiere-leonard-the-lyrebird-a-musical-story/ for the Saturday performance or Eventbrite for all performances: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/leonard-the-lyrebird-a-musical-story-tickets-54187540392?aff=ebapi
Thanks to everyone who came on Sunday to support us. There was standing room only in the end and Jodie and I couldn't be happier with the response. If you'd like to buy a copy and can't get it at your local bookshop yet (ask them and they might stock it for you), follow this link to buy directly through Jodie: http://www.jodiemcleod.com/books.html.
