Each September, Brisbane Festival explodes across the city with a thrilling program of theatre, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events.

Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical reinvention.

His dynamo new live project, Struggle With Glory, continues to cross musical boundaries, transporting the classic Greco-Roman myths into a surreal world of old-time jazz and gospel music that’ll have you toe-tapping and humming in the aisles.

Singers from Brisbane’s The Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) form the uplifting ‘Gospel Choir’.

Revenge, giant beasts in strange lands, the doomed love affairs of gods and men, and the unstoppable torrent of fate is served up with the unmistakable sound of Harry’s old dented trumpet.

“…brimming with tragedy… a glorious blend of traditional jazz and gospel tropes, sublime playing and an enveloping warm production.” - FORTE
