2021 Festival Package
The 2021 Festival will open with an art exhibition and sit-down dinner at the beautifully refurbished Clarendon Arms just across the road from the Falls Pavilion in Evandale.
For our first concert we will welcome Australia’s internationally renowned Goldner String Quartet playing Schubert and Beethoven and a composition especially written for them by a myriad of Australian composers based around Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”.
I think one of the highlights of each Festival is the opportunity to discover a new part of Northern Tasmania. This year it is the Meander Valley and the beautiful Village of Westbury. Westbury’s three churches will feature performances by percussionist, Claire Edwardes, harpist Genevieve Lang and a fabulous homage to Sculthorpe by the Goldner String Quartet. We will enjoy lunch on the Village Green.
Saturday night we move to the Longford Town Hall for an a capella recital by the Idea of North.
Sunday morning we are back in Westbury for a performance of Schubert Lieder with David Greco and Erin Helyard at the Town Hall. This will be followed by a sit- down lunch at the picturesque Culzean Gardens generously hosted by Dinah Fitzgerald and Philip Leith where David and Erin will be in conversation. Die schöne Mullerin will be performed in Festival 1 and Die Winterreise in Festival 2.
