Join Acacia Quartet for a fascinating journey in time and history.

Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 10 in E Flat Major, Op. 74 'Harp' is the last of his masterful 'middle' quartets, it's a glorious work: full, rich and befitting the middle period character known as “Eroica.” In contrast, Moya Henderson's Kudikynah Cave will transport you to Tasmania's wilderness and Nicholas Vines' The Law of the Tongue is telling the story of early whale hunting in Eden, Southern NSW.
