Students of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music present the Sydney Baroque Music Festival, which is now in its third year.
The concert this year has the theme of ‘Water Music’, and the programme includes movements from Handel’s Water Music Suite and Rebel’s Les Elemens, as well as works by Marais and Telemann. For the first time, the festival will feature a soloist, Venezuelan born violinist Rafael Font, who will perform Vivaldi’s La Tempesta Di Mare. Rafael has recently come to Australia from studying at Guildhall in London.
An opportunity for emerging baroque music students to meet, network and play music together, the Sydney Baroque Music Festival gathers musicians from around Australia for a week of rehearsals, culminating in a public concert. This year participating musicians come from Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. The festival runs from December 7th to December 11th, with the concert on Friday 11th in the Conservatorium Music Workshop.
The festival is generously supported by the Sydney Conservatorium, which donates all rehearsal and performance venues. Specialist tutors from the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Pinchgut Opera, Ironwood and the Australian Haydn Ensemble also donate their time to the festival.
The final concert is open to the public free of charge.
Tickets: Free admission.
