A Prelude in Tea Concert
Wenona School and the Independent Theatre are committed to ensuring the safety of patrons and staff, and have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Following the government’s directive to restrict public gatherings to minimise risk and prevent unnecessary exposure to the community, the difficult decision has been made by the School to cancel all events up to and including Sunday 28 June, 2020.
The School is also concerned for the wellbeing and long term viability of our vibrant arts community. We are especially mindful of the situation now faced by small organisations and freelance artists who do not have access to resources or contingency plans. In light of which, all ticketholders are offered the option of either receiving a full refund, or donating their ticket price to support the artists through this difficult period in the performing arts sector.
We will continue to work alongside the event organisers to reschedule these performances and notify patrons of new information once this critical period has passed. Details will also be posted on the Independent Theatre website as they come to hand.
We greatly appreciate your understanding and support through this challenging period.
Single tickets: Adult $49, Concession $32, Student $22, Child $17
Subscriptions from $87 Concession and $132 Adult.
Approximately 1 hour 50 mins with intermission
Formed in 2002, Nexas Quartet are focused on promoting the musical diversity of the saxophone, showcasing its versatility and ability to cross genres. The group’s success comes from a combination of personalities, virtuosic saxophone skills, and an ability to program concerts of a wide appeal that has seen the musicians perform in a multitude of settings. This unique approach has enabled Nexas Quartet to perform throughout Australia and internationally, performing a diverse repertoire that reflects their artistic direction. Ranging from transcriptions, standard and contemporary repertoire, to collaborations with theatre companies and premiering and commissioning new works. At the forefront of chamber music, Nexas Quartet are leaders in promoting existing and creating new repertoire for the saxophone quartet.
