On the 26 of May, at the Sydney Opera House, Georgia McDonald, one third of Melbourne band Camp Cope performed in two sell out shows for the Vivid Sydney festival of light, music and ideas. Georgia McDonald is the daughter of Anna Paxinos and the late Hugh McDonald and the granddaughter of Georgia and Peter Paxinos.
This popular festival has grown into the largest of its kind in the world. It is famous for its cutting edge contemporary music program, some of the world’s most important creative industry forums and an outdoor ‘gallery’ of extraordinary lighting sculptures including the spectacular illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails.
Camp Cope, an alternative indie rock band, was formed in 2015 and the group consists of Georgia ‘Maq’ McDonald singer and guitarist, bass player Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich, and drummer Sara ‘Thommo’ Thompson. The performance was reviewed in an article that appeared on the Moshcam Newsletter.
