One way that venues, producers and individuals in the Australian performing arts industry have remained engaged with their patrons during the COVID-19 pandemic is through online broadcasted shows. With financial support from the Victoria Together initiative, Arts Centre Melbourne, John Foreman and the Aussie Pops Orchestra has been able to produce a second season of ‘Big Night In with John Foreman’, with weekly episodes running until 14 October 2020.
With Episodes 3 and 4 now upon us, Arts Centre Melbourne has confirmed which special guests will be in attendance at each broadcast:
Wednesday 23 September at 7pm
Eddie Perfect, Bernadette Robinson and Geraldine Hickey
Wednesday 30 September at 7pm
Christine Anu and Zoy Frangos
These guests will be joined, as they stream from their homes, by host John Foreman, with musical backing by the Aussie Pops Orchestra. Eddie Perfect and the Aussie Pops Orchestra will serenade audiences with ‘A Place By The River’ and Robinson will be joined by accompanist Paul Noonan to sing ‘One Perfect Day’. Audiences can also look forward to what has been described as “extraordinary musical moments” performed by Anu and Frangos.
