Sunday 26 April
The Seraphim Trio
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 Friday 26 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.
Please contact the Independent Theatre by email: (email@example.com) or telephone (02) 9409 4462 to advise of your preferred option, including your name and contact number, the name and date of the event, and the booking confirmation number if available. All requests will be processed over the 14 day period following receipt of your request.
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.

Over the last two decades, Helen Ayres, Anna Goldsworthy and Tim Nankervis have remained steadfastly committed to chamber music – from building the contemporary repertoire, to developing new audiences and teaching the next generation of performers. Inspiring others through intelligent programming and a deep knowledge and love of chamber music, Seraphim Trio never fails to delight audiences. Winners of the Piano Trio Prize and the Audience Choice Award at the Australian National Chamber Music Competition in 2001 (now the Asia-Pacific Chamber Music Competition), Seraphim Trio has regularly performed at the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival, the Adelaide Festival of Arts, the Peninsular Summer Music Festival and in 2013, Opera Australia’s Ring Festival in Melbourne. Alongside its acclaimed subscription series Seraphim Trio is frequently broadcast on ABC Classic FM and on the MBS network, and maintains a robust commissioning program. Seraphim frequently collaborates with Australia's leading musicians: including Diana Doherty, Paul Dean, Lisa Harper-Brown, David Elton, and most recently with Paul Kelly. The group has studied in Germany with Hatto Beyerle, and in Australia with William Hennessy, Eleonora Sivan, Mark Mogilevski, Ronald Farren-Price and Lois Simpson.
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.
