With music, photography and activities for the kids, there's plenty to keep the whole family busy this weekend.
What’s On: Halloween fun, jazz tunes and back to nature
If you haven’t already, now’s the time to check out The Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year exhibition at the South Australian Museum. The exhibition runs until November 15 and celebrates the natural heritage of Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea. Pictured is last year’s winner Fin Whale’s Demise, by Mat Beetson.
Teenagers are invited to celebrate the return of live events at the Art Gallery of South Australia with Neo Full Moon: Teen Takeover. Responding to Tarnanthi, the gallery’s annual exhibition of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, the takeover will include live performances by Ngarrindjeri singer Katie Aspel, Battle of the Bands finalists, Young Adelaide Voices and Cirkidz; mural painting with contemporary artist Elizabeth Close; workshops in traditional weaving, theatre games and drag choreography, plus much more. Neo Full Moon takes place in the gallery on Saturday from 6–8.30pm (registrations essential), with the opportunity to participate virtually via the Neo Portal.
Jazzing it up
Swingin’, singin’ and a solid bossa beat – that’s what you can expect at The Jones Songbook, a new show by choral director Charmaine Jones featuring several ensembles led by Adelaide Fringe favourites Gospo Collective, alongside “a smokin’ band”. The Jones Songbook will be at the Arkaba on Saturday (two performances) and Sunday, with choral renditions of crowd-pleasing jazz standards that Charmaine says will “make you leave happy and wanting to dance”.
Best of Baroque
Adelaide Baroque is presenting Sei Solo, the second of two Baroque Explorations concerts for 2020, on Sunday at 3pm in the beautiful Brougham Place Uniting Church in North Adelaide. Sei Solo will be performed by solo violinist Simone Slattery and feature music by Bach, Matteis, Locatelli and others. Adelaide Baroque’s next concert will be Cathedral Christmas, part of its orchestral series, at St Peter’s Cathedral on November 14.
Dare to escape
If you’re up for a scare just in time for Halloween, stop into Adventure Rooms on Rundle Mall to experience The Abandoned Cabin room. The experience was inspired by the popularity of horror movies and experiences, such as ghost tours. It all begins with a thunderstorm during a picnic in the woods, taking a spooky turn from there.
