Acacia are immensely proud of what we have accomplished over the past seven years and are excited about our plans for the future.

In 2016 Acacia was invited to perform in Canada at the Queer Arts Festival in Vancouver presenting Lyle Chan’s String Quartet ‘An AIDS Activist’s Memoir in Music’ and commissioned two string quartets by Australian composers Sally Whitwell and Joe Twist.

Acacia premiered a total of eleven Australian works in 2016  alone.

In 2017, Acacia was invited by the Christine Raphael Foundation in Germany to perform 4 concerts in Berlin and record three of Günter Raphael’s forgotten string quartets for CD, while continuing the exploration of Australian music.

Acacia has a self-presented series at the Utzon Room, Sydney Opera House, Family Concerts, Youth Music Workshop in Bellingen and Bega, performances in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney as well as regional tours in NSW and VIC.

We are grateful for our wonderful patrons who have helped make these events a success over the years.
