Knowing the Score – UK film premiere hosted by Tait Memorial Trust

The Tait Memorial Trust invites you to join them for a unique event celebrating the life and career of a great Australian.

In the sumptuous surrounds of The Barbican in London, they will be hosting the UK premiere of the highly acclaimed new film, Knowing the Score, a biopic of Australian conductor Simone Young AM.

An inspiring, brilliant woman who made it to the top in a man’s world wielding her wit, determination, sense of humour and baton, Young has conducted opera and classical music in New York, London, Berlin, Vienna, to name a few. The girl from Manly Beach, now a woman with so many firsts to her name, she’s tired of the whole “woman” title that follows her around.

Executive produced by Academy Award winner and 2023 Golden Globe winner for Tár, Cate Blanchett, Knowing the Score captures the career of an extraordinary conductor, its challenges and triumphs, past, present and into the future.

Young will be guest of honour at the premiere and will take part in a Q&A with the film’s executive producer, Georgie Black. The filmmaker, Margie Bryant, will also be there as a special guest.

Tait Memorial Trust chair Isla Baring OAM says: “We are honoured to share this exciting premiere with you and to give you the unique opportunity to meet such exceptionally gifted artists.”
