    Event description

    Warm your bones in the dead of Winter with the sound of 12 cellos filling the beautiful St George's Anglican Church space, featuring the music of Greig, Faure, Strauss and more. 

    Surrounded by beautiful candlelight, this Winter concert experience will be peppered with special surprises and guest appearances for a seamless celebration of all things cello.

    The Cygnet Cello Choir is a local group of female cellists of all ages and levels of experience, founded and directed by Georgia Shine. Georgia brings an interdisciplinary approach to the group and creatively infuses the process of learning with the Alexander Technique, dance and other creative tools designed to bring us into connection with the music from a place of wholeness and celebration. The Cygnet Cello Choir looks forward to inviting you to be a part of the magic by sharing this exquisite music with you!

    Winter is a time of hibernation for most plants and animals. Energy moves away from the extremities and into the core. Sap moves down the trunks of trees into the roots in the soil, where seeds lie dormant; gestating. Winter is associated with death in many cultures, and is a vital time to let go of what is ready to be composted for the new life of Spring. We invite you to come inside, to wrap yourself up in the warm embrace of the sonority of the cello and contemplate what seeds you are planting in this time of rest and renewal. 

    Doors open at 4:30pm for a 5pm start
