The South Coast Music Society will present its final concert for 2016 at 3.00 pm on Sunday 13 November in St Bernard’s Church, Batehaven. The concert is the Acacia Quartet and the music performed by Lisa Stewart and Myee Clohessy on violins, Stefan Duwe on the viola and Anna Martin-Scrase on the cello has been described as “riveting”, sensitive” and a group with “extraordinary talent”.
The afternoon’s concert will consist of a programme of music by Mozart, Beethoven and a newly commissioned String Quartet by Sally Whitwell.
The Acacia Quartet’s performances feature regularly on ABC Classic FM, Fine Music 102.5 and Qantas In-flight Entertainment. They have three albums which have earned nominations for an ARIA award for ‘Best Classical Album and an ARA-AMCOS Art Music ‘Award for Excellence’.
The Quartet has been performing together for six years. Last year, for their five year anniversary, Acacia celebrated with the world premiere of eight new Australian works and performances at the Concourse in Sydney, the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Bowral at their Autumn Music Festival as Ensemble-in-Residence, and at the Bellingen Music Festival, the Pearl Beach Festival and ‘Music By the Sea’ Festival in Brisbane.
Tickets for the concert are available at the door on online at www.southcoastmusicsociety.com. Adults’ tickets will be $35; members and pensioners $30. All school aged children accompanied by an adult will be free.
