Sizzle is contemporary classical music at the local bowlo. Now in it’s seventh year, Sizzle has become a fixture in the Inner West arts calendar.
With the usual mix of art-meets-popular culture-meets-family fun, this year promises an all female composer line-up; special guest artists and jazz super-collective, Sirens Big Band; an interactive music installation for contrabass clarinet and ping pong balls by Melbourne-based Aviva Endean; and an eco-friendly instrument-building workshop with a twist for all ages by Liz Jigalin. Add a dash of chaos for good measure! It’s free and family-friendly as usual.
