Places are being taken fast on the two local Music tours listed for 2016.
The most urgent is the Country House Music Weekend in Hobart, a festival of Schubert from 26 of February to the 1 March. Beautifully performed by Seraphim Trio, with a commentary by the ABC’s Christopher Lawrence, the music will be interspersed with fine wining and dining and some local touring. This was a rave in 2015 with a Beethoven program, and this 2016 offering looks like it will be even more popular.
The other offering falls at the end of the year when Opera Australia stages its second series of Wagner’s Ring Cycle. I am holding a limited number of cycle tickets, so if you have missed an allocation from your subscription, here’s a chance to guarantee your seats! There are also accommodation, meal and touring packages.
Apologies for my gaff with the Newsletter. In the editing process, Len Amadio’s music tour from Amsterdam to Zurich, focusing on the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, slipped off the radar. As you can see on this website, it is still definitely listed, and we are finalizing the additional performances that make up the musical timetable of the tour.
May we take this opportunity to wish you and yours a particular happy holiday season, and a promising New Year!
