Musical Director Andrew Bainbridge, Organist of St Mary's Cathedral and Assistant Chorusmaster of the TSO Chorus, formed the ensemble in 2010 delivering highly acclaimed performances of Handel's Messiah in 2010 and 2011.

    4. Another Leftover With the series Another Leftover, emerging artist Lara Carbone explores the sensations that the viewer may experience when confronted with what is not often observed.

What is perceived is that leftovers are part of the common life of each individual.
