Angaston’s Old Union Chapel, Thu Feb 19
Sky and his violin come to the Fringe with a fascinating background. He doesn’t have the expert training from a young age that many other violinists do, giving him a unique playing style. Originally from China, Sky was a professional dancer until the age of 30. He then became a hairdresser for several years before turning to the violin. What is a common goal among these career choices? Sky wants to “make people feel beautiful and happy.” He doesn’t say another word aside from that, and he didn’t need to. Sky’s outstanding talents on the violin speak for him.
He plays an hour of absolutely exquisite music. The act features a great range of performances, from world famous songs such as Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On and Westlife’s You Raise Me Up to some Chinese classics. Sky also performs a touching tribute to honour those lost on September 11, accompanied by a slideshow of images, which had a few audience members in tears.
In addition to his use of multimedia, Sky uses the lighting in an interesting manner. He had all of them in the room turned off except a specific coloured spotlight on the stage which changed depending on the type of music. It was an effective way to adjust the mood in the room to match the song. The man just wants to “make people feel beautiful and happy?” Goals accomplished! There is no false advertising in the name above. Sky’s title summed up the night perfectly; Music From Heaven.
Sky’s Violin – Music From Heaven continues at The Garage International @ Town Hall until Thu Mar 5.
