Join us in 2019 for inspiring performances, great company, tea, coffee and cake on five Wednesday mornings throughout the year.
Sydney’s Coffee Concert season reaches new heights in 2019 with a sparkling new venue featuring a great acoustic, enhanced facilities and easier transport options. But the refreshments remain the best in town and the performers and repertoire will again be a cavalcade of diverse brilliance.
The year starts with energy and élan in the accomplished hands of virtuoso harpist Alice Giles, plucking from thin air a beautiful program of Britten, Debussy and Salzedo. On sabbatical from her burgeoning career in Finland, Australian pianist Aura Go keeps the joy rolling in a classic program of Bach, Beethoven and Debussy.
Vocal music has been noticeably absent from our recent Coffee Concert seasons, a situation to be rectified in full by the Sydney Chamber Choir in a program of magnificent English choral music spanning four centuries. And, as usual, the peerless Goldner String Quartet is reserved a special place in the series, this time presenting Rachmaninoff’s brief, wistful first quartet alongside Beethoven’s wonderful first Razumovsky Quartet.
Sydney’s Coffee Concerts for 2019 are a glittering showcase of superlative performance and consummate content. A perfect way to indulge both your senses and your spirit.
