Nick Russoniello & The Golden Age Quartet
From The Wireless
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 remaining events for 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.
Nick Russoniello has been the recipient of a number of major awards including the ABC Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year and the Fine Music Kruger Scholarship. Nick has appeared as a soloist with the Adelaide, Queensland, Melbourne and Sydney Symphony Orchestras and as a guest performer with the Acacia Quartet, Omega Ensemble, Australian Opera Ballet Orchestra and the Australian World Orchestra. Nick's compositions have been performed around the globe and his performances can be regularly heard on ABC Classic FM and Fine Music 102.5. Nick is a Yamaha Australia artist. The Golden Age Quartet is a new and innovative chamber ensemble, delivering research-led performances that explore the aesthetic of a bygone era. Formed to explore the sound world of the early twentieth century, this quartet plays on a mixture of modern and period strings and in a style reminiscent of early twentieth century ensembles: the Marjorie Hayward and London String Quartets. The players share a passion for creative and expressive performance and have individually performed in some of the world's elite ensembles including the Mannheimer Phiharmoniker, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Academy of St Martins in The Field, The Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
Join us on the last Sunday of the month for the popular Prelude in Tea Sunday concert series, famously featuring a luscious afternoon tea served from 2:30, followed by a 3:30 concert from some of Australia’s best and most exciting small ensembles. Cake from 2:30, Concert at 3:30. A Prelude in Tea concert is the perfect Sunday afternoon out.
