Piano+Place with Jim Moginie

5 July 2024

This event takes place off site at Anzac Memorial

Contemporary Music

Australian music ‘legend’ Jim Moginie from Midnight Oil discovers the sacred space of the Anzac Memorial revealing the secrets that live behind the walls, expressed through the sounds of the acoustic piano, storytelling and improvisation.

Please note: this event is not held at the Sydney Opera House.

If only the walls could speak!

With a forty-five year legacy dedicated to the award winning band Midnight Oil, along with his work as a songwriter, musician and producer, Jim Moginie is an icon in the Australian music scene.

Be spellbound as Jim draws on the hidden history, architecture and struggles of returned soldiers who fought bravely for our country and who are honoured at the Anzac Memorial. This haunting performance will include some much-loved Midnight Oil music, improvisation, and storytelling inspired by his own family’s experiences of war.

Jim - as both curator and artist - along with co-curator Ross Heathcote, is the inspiration behind the innovative Piano+Place series that sees four bespoke performances unfold every Friday in July, where celebrated Australian musicians play in historic Sydney spaces.

Presented by Piano+, supported by City of Sydney
