The Ian Potter Recital Hall | The Hedberg , 19 -27 Campbell St, HobartSummary:
An evening of captivating performance, with singer / songwriter 'KARAI' winner of the prestigious Ossa Music Prize for 2021.
The Melbourne-born, Hobart-based musician was one of three finalists who competed for the honour of the OSSA Prize at a public performance on Friday, 2 July at the Hedberg. Named after Tasmania’s highest mountain peak, the OSSA Prize was established in 2018 by University Alumnus, Rod Roberts, to help students pursue excellence in musicianship. Karai credits his musician father and grandparents for his love for music, which drew him to start singing at a young age, before eventually deciding to pursue music seriously at the age of 18. Karai is currently studying a Bachelor of Music at the University of Tasmania.
Join us for a one hour performance showcasing the sublime voice and exquisite song writing of Christian/Karaitiana “KARAI” Hemara.
