The Seraphim Trio – A Prelude in Tea concert

30 June 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm AEST

Single Tickets: Adult $49 | Concession/Under 30 $32 | Student $22 | Child $17.
Afternoon tea included – served from 2:30pm.

The Seraphim Trio return to North Sydney’s spectacular Independent Theatre this June to present a mouth-watering concert of nostalgic European Romantic music – with an Australian twist! Plus the theatre’s legendary afternoon tea included as part of the popular Sunday afternoon “Prelude in Tea” series.

Smetana, the father of Czech music, forms the centrepiece of Seraphim’s first concert for 2019. In this beloved trio, Smetana expresses grief at the loss of his eldest daughter, but finds new life in the birth of a truly nationalist Czech style. Opening the program is Suk’s Elegie, a meditation on the epic Czech poem Vyšehrad by Julius Zeyer. Seraphim is delighted to present a new trio by Richard Mills, comprising a series of musical portraits, commissioned generously by Dimity Reed for her husband’s 80th birthday celebrations.

“…absolute sonic cohesion and uniform musical maturity…a masterclass in chamber music technique and ensemble.” The Australian
