Acacia are immensely proud of what they have accomplished over the past nine years and are excited about their 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 large number of  Australian works since its formation in 2010.

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.

In 2018, Acacia collaborated with recorder player Alicia Crossley, violist Emile Cantor and guitarist Matt Withers, resulting in wonderful concerts and tours and two CD’s - Muse with Alicia Crossley and Imaginations with Matt Withers.

Acacia has a self-presented series at the Independent Theatre in North Sydney, Youth Music Workshops in regional New South Wales and Victoria and performances in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney as well as regional tours in New South Wales and Victoria.

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