A special feature of this year's Open Day is the world premiere of Liberty and Death, a new work for community musicians written by Canberra composer Michael Sollis. The work is based on the conflict between bushrangers and settlers in early Canberra, with performers completing a series of musical 'games' - it promises to be an exciting experience!
