Tafelmusik’s Australian tour reaches halfway point
It’s hard to believe that Tafelmusik’s Australian tour is already half-way through. Having already performed in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra there are still concerts in Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane to come.The tour has been a busy one. As well as their public concerts orchestra members have appeared on Andrew Ford’s The Music Show on ABC Radio National, and chatted to Marie Nicolson, Christopher Lawrence and Margaret Throsby on various ABC Classic FM programs. Emma Ayres even declared that Tafelmusik are not allowed to leave Australia as they’re just too good. If Tafelmusik’s blog is anything to go by the musicians certainly seem to be enjoying their tour and are making an effort to see the sights and try local restaurants, so perhaps we could win them around to this idea yet. Members of Tafelmusik have also spared time to give a private performance for Musica Viva’s Amadeus society, generously supporting this tour, and meet with some of our corporate sponsors, as well as participating in pre-concert talks and post-concert Meet the Artist question and answer sessions. All in all, a busy but, we hope, rewarding tour!
