Mini Festival of Classical Music

Concert or Performance

2 Jun 2019

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon – than listening to classical music as you sip your favourite aperitif – and take in the sunset over beautiful Lake Tuggeranong.

Hear some of Canberra’s finest up and coming young musicians in the opening concert, with an hour of beautiful music performed by outstanding young musicians from the ANU School of Music including various combinations of harp, guitar, oboe, soprano, tuba and piano.

Be captivated by a delightful main concert program – with classical favourites for music lovers and the whole family, the centerpiece being Camille Saint-Saëns’ ever popular Carnival of the Animals.

Saint-Saëns’ witty musical portraits of the various animals (and humans) will be accompanied by narration of Ogden Nash’s highly amusing, tongue in cheek poems in this version for strings and duo pianists.

Debussy’s delightful Petite Suite will be played in the seldom heard piano quintet version, as well as selections from Schubert’s Trout Quintet and more. Echoing the Tuggeranong Centre’s CONTRA theme for this year –the contrabass features throughout the program.
