Tafelmusik’s Australian tour nears its end
Tafelmusik performs the last concert of their Australian tour in Brisbane tonight, before heading off to New Zealand tomorrow for a performance at the New Zealand International Arts Festivals.
With a typical day consisting of a flight in the morning, rehearsal in the afternoon and performance in the evening we’re pleased (if not a little amazed!) that the musicians have managed to squeeze in time to see the local sights. Tafelmusik’s blog has lots more stories and photos of the group’s tour “Down Under”, including trips to parks, galleries, restaurants, and even a performance of The Marriage of Figaro at Sydney Opera House!
Three weeks away from home can seem like a long time but we’re so glad Tafelmusik has been able to share their wonderful Galileo Project with Australian audiences. As has been noted elsewhere, bringing this ensemble to Australia has been a long time in the making and we’re very grateful to the supporters both in Australia and Canada who have helped make this possible. We wish Tafelmusik safe travels to New Zealand and onwards to home.
