Event description

FREE EVENT - NOT TICKETED


Let us welcome the youngest generation of artists to the stage to start the Festival proper. Emerging out of Canberra’s own music community, the Ellery String Quartet is going places, with daring and entertaining repertoire choices. Enter Holly Harrison and Caroline Shaw, two of the most prominent young women composers in Australia and the United States respectively.  Be prepared for flashes of virtuosity and more than a dash of youthful verve in the renditions by the Ellery quartet, joined by Melbourne pianist Anna Gao, making her first appearance at the Festival.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of Ara Vartoukian OAM, piano whisperer and founder of Theme & Variations Foundation.
