The Federation Bells are playing their part in AFL Grand Final Week with original arrangements of all the Football Club theme songs.
All the clubs’ themes will be featured in an end of season ladder countdown on Friday 28th September at 12.30pm and 5.00pm. And of course the two competing Grand Final teams’ songs will be played on Grand Final day (Saturday 30th September), and the 2018 AFL Grand Final Winner’s theme will be featured on Sunday 30 September.
So come along and celebrate the AFL Grand Final week, and hear your club’s theme as never heard before.
All the themes were arranged by composers from across Australia:
Greater Western Sydney
Barney McAll's Trilogy of Cycles
Saturday 2 June, 2pm – free
World-class local pianist and composer, Barney McAll, premieres Trilogy of Cycles at Birrarung Marr’s Federation Bells.
Presented by the City of Melbourne for its premiere at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the composition will feature live interactive improvisation with the bells, an ensemble of musicians and McAll masterfully leading the interplay on keyboards and his self-made instrument “Chucky” (various music boxes, glockenspiel, kalimba and electronics), creating an unforgettably ethereal soundscape on the banks of the Yarra River.
