Since 1991, the Tyalgum Festival of Classical Music has enthralled audiences in the intimate setting of a small village community hall, renowned for its superb acoustics. Over the years, the event has matured into a collaborative festival offering an international standard of performance, through the theme of “Music, Art and Nature in Australia’s Green Cauldron”.
The Festival now enjoys strong support from within the arts, cultural, tourism and business sectors of the Tweed Shire and the Northern Rivers region, and we draw from that support as the event evolves to become the new Tyalgum Music Festival. Many plans are brewing from the new 2014 artistic team. We are busy with creative new ideas to light up the whole village with music.
A number of artists have been confirmed and we will be welcoming Australia’s wonderful, much loved and innovative vocal group, the Song Company for the whole weekend. The popular Lunaire Collective will perform with Brisbane-based jazz trio Trichotomy, hailed as one of the most exciting trios in contemporary jazz, in what will be a sparkling Saturday night performance.
Other artists will include one of Australia’s foremost pianists, Tamara Anna Cislowska, who will appear both solo and together with Anna McMichael in a Lullaby programme that has toured nationally. The programme was recently Cd of the Week on ABC classic fm. We plan to have a Spanish flavour running through the Festival, and are scheduling a broad range of musical offerings and lots of opportunities for community involvement.
We have strengthened our association with the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, and are planning some additional performances in and around the local shopfronts as ‘pop-up’ concerts to add to the Festival vibe. As well as presenting high-class chamber music groups in their own concerts, this year’s Festival will offer a family concert and late night music and tapas as post-concert evening entertainment.
It is promising to be a Festival not to be missed!
