Melbourne Coffee Concerts Series 2017
ALEXANDRE DA COSTA violin
KRISTIAN CHONG piano
The 2017 Coffee Concert season opens with the Melbourne debut of Canadian violinist Alexandre Da Costa, in partnership with acclaimed pianist Kristian Chong. The two performers are a natural fit, combining prodigious technique with wonderful artistry – and that certain charisma known as ‘star quality’. Though this is Alex’s first performance in Melbourne, he is no stranger to the great concert halls of the world. Making his home in Perth for part of the year as Head of Strings at WAAPA, he is highly sought after as soloist and director, and maintains a busy international performance schedule.
