Mrs Carey's Concert

Mrs Carey's Concert


Duration 95'

At a Sydney girls’ school, music director Karen Carey prepares her young students for a concert at the Opera House. Believing in the transformative power of great music, Carey insists upon a classical repertoire, sets a dauntingly high performance standard and requires the participation of every girl in the school. Carey inspires many of her girls, but some do not share her passion and are not afraid to say so. The result is an illuminating, fly-on-wall study of the struggles, hard work, personal dramas, tears and triumphs involved in the challenging project which demonstrates the transforming and life-changing power of music.

Emily Sun won the category of ‘Best Newcomer’ in Australia’s classical arts Limelight Magazine Awards as the lead role in this acclaimed 2011 film, the longest-running documentary in Australian cinema history and shown in film festivals across the world to acclaimed reviews. Emily will introduce this afternoon's screening and take part in a Q & A afterwards.
