It’s fantastic to be back in the room together and celebrating all the amazing work people have done over the past two years waiting for the time when they can take the stage. I can’t wait for Bangarra to come back. It’s a fantastic company that works on such a theatrical, grand scale. I’m also excited about Arena’s Robot Song, which is a fantastic, award-winning performance created right here in Bendigo.” Robot Song singer Jade Cuskelly landed her role in 2020 but had to wait two years to hit the stage in the show. She performed as part of the Tuesday night launch with Robot Song scheduled to debut in Bendigo in May. “I was 16 when I first auditioned (in 2020) and now we’re in 2022 and we still haven’t put Robot Song in Bendigo. I feel like it’s a step out of my comfort zone, but it’s been a great experience.” Bendigo Symphony Orchestra Principal Viola Cally Bartlett said it was wonderful to be busy with music.” We all went through a period of grief and grief when everything shut down and was shut down many times,” she said. “But the Bendigo Symphony Orchestra was brought together by a love of performance, so the more we get to do it, the better. We have four major programs planned (this year) with the final concert being Beethoven’s 9th with Merlyn Quaife, some choirs and our marvelous orchestra.
