FUNDRAISER 2016

SUNDAY 06 NOVEMBER 2016 - 2pm

Rose Room - 51F Sunninghill Avenue, Burradoo NSW 2576, Australia

By attending this annual fundraiser you will be supporting one of Australia’s most esteemed chamber music ensembles. 

Monies raised will help finance Acacia’s first European tour to Berlin next year. The Raphael Foundation has invited Acacia Quartet to perform and record Raphael's string quartets Nos. 1, 2 & 6 in May 2017 in Berlin (read more about this exciting project here) but won't be able to fund the travel costs. Acacia also plan to present their successful Children’s Concerts in the Southern Highlands and premiere new Australian compositions throughout regional Australia and at their Sydney Opera House, Utzon Room Series. 

This intimate event at The Rose Room will feature performances by Acacia Quartet, an auction of superb prizes, a music quiz, delicious canapés and fine wine.


HARBOUR LIGHT

WEDNESDAY 09 NOVEMBER 2016 - 7PM

Sydney Opera House - Utzon Room, Sydney NSW, Australia

Acacia was looking forward to performing this program for a while - there's a strong connection with film music in here... 

The concert will start with Harbour Light by Nick Wales, followed by an old favourite of ours, Philip Glass' String Quartet No. 2 Company, followed by two newly commissioned works by two of Acacia's favourite composers Joe Twist and Sally Whitwell. After the interval we'll continue with George Gershwin's beautiful Lullaby and will end the concert with Bernard Herrmann's Echoes.

Raphael Project

 

The Raphael Foundation has invited Acacia Quartet to perform and record Raphael's string quartets Nos. 1, 2 & 6 in May 2017 in Berlin.
