For the Love of Music with Chat 10 Looks 3

Chat 10 Looks 3 meets the Australian Chamber Orchestra when Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales join Richard Tognetti and the ACO for an evening of music, laughter and revelations.


Warning - this is not your typical classical music concert. Chart-topping podcasters and beloved ABC journalists Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales of Chat 10 Looks 3 join Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra for a night of irreverence, fun and awe-inspiring music.

Nothing is off limits as the pair delve into all their burning questions, from what it’s like to perform on priceless 300-year-old instruments to what it takes to break into the notoriously competitive music industry, and how and why music has such a mystical power over all of us.

Interspersed between Sales and Crabb’s lively discussion with Richard and members of the ACO will be mesmerizing performances of music including Tchaikovsky’s sublime Andante Cantabile arranged for cello and orchestra, Piazzolla’s fiery Libertango and US singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens’ infectious Run Rabbit Run.

Whether you’re an ACO fan, a Chatter or someone simply looking for a fun night out, we hope you’ll join us for this unmissable live show that promises to be as entertaining as it is enlightening.
