Argo is a contemporary classical music concert series + collective from Brisbane Australia. Founded in 2015 by Connor D’Netto, its artistic director and producer, alongside fellow composer/performer Ben Heim, Argo draws upon a background in classical music and contemporary influences to create new works, performances and experiences which bend the boundaries of genre and art form, and to challenge the norms of musical performance and staging with immersive art music events. Our focus is on creating experiential and concept driven events that fuse classical instruments and ensembles with contemporary influences and new modes of musical expression.
“If your New Year’s resolution was to learn more about electronic, experimental or contemporary classical music, there’s been no better time to be in Brisbane than now.”
“The right words to evoke this fresh new music change with each formulation, but suffice it to say it’s always a great way of spending time.”
“Argo is a unique concept that is greater than the sum of these parts, and impresses in achieving its aim of breaking down barriers between musical genres- and going one step further, to blur the boundaries between musical genre and art installation.”
“Argo do performances rather than concerts proper. Which is to say that you really have to be there to get it . . . it’s certain to make you stop and think and listen. I definitely recommend it.”
