What do you get when you cross one of Australia’s leading baroque music ensembles with two of Australia’s most creative young musicians? The answer is an adventure! A Christmas musical adventure. Classically trained in Australia and Europe, our special guests Emily-Rose Šárkova and Susie Bishop fuse the discipline of classical music with the passion, fire and freedom of tango and world music. Hear rare Christmas music from around the globe, Šárkova’s arrangement of Marin Marais for viola da gamba and piano accordion and much more. There will be fine music and fun for the whole family all in the very special atmosphere The Independent offers patrons.
In 2017, The Marais Project returns to The Independent, North Sydney, for three fabulously diverse events, its 18th year of creative concert-giving. Since its founding by Jennifer Eriksson in 2000, The Marais Project has released 5 CDs, three of which have been selected as “CD of the Week” on ABC Classic FM. A 6th CD will appear in 2017. The group regularly features in national and local studio broadcasts and radio interviews. They have performed across Eastern Australia and as guest artists in New Zealand.
This is Prelude in Tea concert presented by the Independent Theatre. Scrumptious afternoon tea served from 2:30pm, stellar chamber music concert at 3:30pm. It’s the perfect Sunday afternoon out.
