One of Australia’s most dynamic chamber music groups – Omega Ensemble – is headlining Music in the Regions’ Winter tour across the Central West from 22nd July to 31st July and will play live in Canowindra.
The Winter Regional Tour will see Omega Ensemble perform a high-energy program, from Mozart’s cherished Clarinet Quintet to the world premiere of a new contemporary Australian work by Australian composer Carl Vine.
The Ensemble will perform in Canowindra on Sunday 24th July at All Saints Anglican Church at 2pm.
“Chamber music is all about intimacy, so to perform in these unique smaller venues that are so intrinsic to the region and community is exactly what we love to do. It brings us all closer together and makes for a one-of-a-kind musical experience. It is one of the most rewarding parts of touring,” said musician David Rowden.
Audiences on the Winter Regional Tour will be among the first in the world to hear a new work by legendary Australian composer Carl Vine, which Omega Ensemble commissioned especially for the program.
“It is a wickedly difficult Clarinet Quintet that really puts us through our paces. Coming straight off the back of premiere performances in Sydney and Newcastle just two weeks earlier, we’re so excited to be hitting the road with this new work as part of the program,” David said.
Omega Ensemble principal musicians appearing on the Winter Regional Tour are: David Rowden, clarinet; Peter Clark, violin; Neil Thompson, viola; and Paul Stender, cello.
