As Hamburg-based Australian Harpist Jessica Fotinos was coming to BIFEM as soloist in the Seeing Double concert, we asked her if she wouldn’t mind taking on the most contested event in the whole festival: the under-five-year-olds Cushion Concert. BIFEM’s most honest and brutal audience of pre-schoolers make their virtuosi work hard, but Jessica and her harp will doubtless prove spellbinding in this mini-recital for our mini-BIFEM crowd. Accompanying adults will also be captivated by the beauty and energy of this performance.
