THE REST has arrived in style via a memorable book launch at the Victorian Artists' Society's "Hammond Gallery".
Guests were treated to the reflections of highly regarded actress Julie Nihill on the subject of connectivity in the arts and -- by way of illustration -- her evocative readings from Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot and... the Marx Brothers! Following a segue into Janis' performance of the excerpt from Respighi's "Pines of Rome" and an informative talk about the content and purpose of the book the presentation was completed by guest soprano -- rising star, Rada Tochalna -- who gave a glorious performance of the aria "Doretta's Dream" from La Rondine, prefaced by the famous piano introduction.
Cheese, wine, beautiful artwork, animated conversations and books signings spent the rest of the evening - an exciting event in the cultural life of Melbourne.
THE REST is now available via the shop page on this website.
