Last chance for classical fans
CLASSICAL music fans on the Northern Rivers will tomorrow get their last chance to hear a touring classical group at Lismore when the Sydney Omega Ensemble plays Lismore City Hall.
The ensemble, presented by Musica Viva Lismore, will play from 6pm and tickets are only $25 for adults, $20 concession or $10 for children.
Declining audience numbers, this will be the last concert Musica Viva brings to Lismore, leaving classical music fans having to travel to a metropolitan centre and fork out $60 to hear an equivalent performance.
Money raised from tomorrow’s performance will go to the Northern Rivers Conservatorium instrument appeal.
The Sydney Omega Ensemble features clarinet, violin, viola, cello, and double bass along with guest pianist Simon Tedeschi.
The ensemble features Schubert’s Trout Quintet, recently voted Australia’s favourite chamber music piece by listeners to ABC Classic FM.
Other pieces to be performed over the evening include Elena Kats Chernin’s Eliza's Aria and Beethoven’s Clarinet Trio.
Tickets are available from Northern Rivers Conservatorium Arts Centre, La Boutique, River St, Ballina. Hooked on Books, Alstonville Plaza.
