Portrait of Dr Charles Bean

An Evening Inspired by Bean

The Evening Inspired by Bean commences with the opening of Charles Bean: Life and Work, an exhibition exploring and celebrating the life and achievements of historian Dr Charles Bean. The opening is followed by a tribute to the legacy of Charles Bean through music and film, and a panel
discussion about Wain Fimeri's film Charles Bean’s Great War.

Charles Bean’s moving poem Non Nobis has inspired two musical compositions to be performed publicly for the first time at UNSW Canberra, performed by the Burgundian Consort and the Gabriel Singers. In addition to his accompaniment of the Burgundian Consort's performance, Ian Munro will perform the solo piano piece 'Berceuse héroïque' by Claude Debussy.
