Top orchestra to play in Grafton

DAYS before their sound rings through Sydney’s iconic Opera House, the Cologne New Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra will aim to impress audiences in Grafton.

The German orchestral group has included Grafton in its Australian tour while travelling down the east coast. The group aims to bring a world-class classical sound to regional Australia.

Audiences will be captivated by four concertos for violin, string and basso continuo from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, A Johan Sebastian Bach concerto in D Minor for two violins and orchestra, Tchaikovski’s Nocture for Violoncello and Strings, Mozart’s concerto in G Major for flute and orchestra and Pachelbel’s Canon for three violins and basso continuo.

The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra is the only completely independent orchestra in Germany and relies completely on audience and public support to continue operation.

Because of this independence, the orchestra is free of programmatic, institutional and political constraints on artistic expression.

It has been travelling the world for the past 30 years with a devoted ensemble of eight to 80 young musicians from all corners of the world who have been brought together by their common love and understanding of music.

They have visited almost every continent, and through performing in front of a wide variety of audiences, the musicians in the orchestra have had the opportunity to hone and perfect their performance and ensure that every audience member, regardless of their musical taste or experience, enjoy and appreciate the musical journey.

The concert will take place on Monday, March 15 at the Christ Church Cathedral in Duke Street, Grafton and will begin at 8pm.

Tickets are available at the Christ Church Cathedral Parish Office now.

Ticket cost is:

  •  $25 for Children and students.
  •  $30 for pensioners and seniors.
  •  $35 for adults.

Tickets will also be available at the door one hour before the concert.
