It is no coincidence that the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Director David Miller AM and his latest string quintet are staying a couple of nights in Canowindra during the Balloon Challenge this week. David, who has been visiting Canowindra with students for an annual April concert for over 20 years wanted to give the students the opportunity to enjoy the balloons during their 2019 Grand Western Tour of NSW.
It is a chance for local residents and some of the thousands of visitors to Canowindra on Sunday 28th April, to see and hear some of Australia’s most superb new talent play at All Saints Church at 2.00 pm.
The students, all undergraduates the youngest of whom, the viola player, is only eighteen all began their music studies from as young as three years of age. They’ll play from a repertoire including Bach, Beethoven, Boccerini, Mozart, Holst, Shostakovich, Dvorak and others. The students will be accompanied by David Miller on the famous Collard & Collard concert grand piano which resides at All Saints Church. It was built in London in 1956 for the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Tickets are $25 or $15 for school age children and can be purchased at Finns Store (recommended) or at the door, or ring 0429 443 215 to book in advance.
