Midsumma Festival: Chlorophyll by Forest Collective
Forest Collective and emerging alternative pop artist Max Lawrence join forces to premiere an orchestral re-imagining of Lawrence’s debut EP, ‘Chlorophyll’.
A conceptual song cycle exploring the process of spiritual and emotional healing, ‘Chlorophyll’ is a sonic journey encapsulating both darkness and light; about growing from pain and states of apathy and depression to ultimately reconnecting with ourselves and the world around us through music, love, and an appreciation for the beauty of nature.
Allow us to wrap you in the warm and sumptuous melodies of Max Lawrence, as he leads you into the sun-soaked world of ‘Chlorophyll’, performed for the very first time with a 10-piece chamber ensemble conducted by Evan J. Lawson.
Featuring arrangements by Alex Morris and Matt Hirst, this unforgettable evening of moving, dynamic and cathartic live performance is not to be missed.
Presented by Abbotsford Convent and Forest Collective, as part of Midsumma Festival and Convent Live. Chlorophyll is support by City of Yarra’s Annual Grants program.
