Tafelmusik – pre-concert talks, star parties and more!

Tafelmusik’s The Galileo Project is a special tour for Musica Viva so we’re putting on a few special events in conjunction with the tour. We’re grateful to CAASTRO – the Arc Centre of Excellence for All-Sky astrophysics for organising astronomers to give free pre-concert talks before every concert on this tour introducing concert-goers to some of the astronomical themes explored in Tafelmusik’s show. After some concerts the audience will have the opportunity to ask a question of members of Tafelmusik, while after others they will be able to examine the stars through a telescope at special Star Parties. Details are below.

Members of Tafelmusik will give a masterclass at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, on Wednesday 14 March at 12 noon. And listen out for Tafelmusik on the radio – on Saturday 3 March some members will make a special appearance on Andrew Ford’s The Music Show on Radio National, while on Monday 5 March Margaret Throsby interviews Tafelmusik’s Music Director Jeanne Lamon on ABC Classic FM.
