Classics on Course to Hit High Notes on the Fairway

Published on 12 November 2019


The first fairway of the Tumut Golf Club will come alive with the sounds of classical music on Saturday the 23rd of November as part of the inaugural Tumut Classics on Course event.

Proudly sponsored by Snowy Valleys Council in partnership with the Tumut Golf Club and the Riverina Conservatorium of Music, this special outdoor event is designed to appeal to lovers of fine music.

Featuring live classical music performances from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music’s 40 piece Youth Orchestra and guest support act local classical guitarist Abel Lawson, the licensed event will also feature local wines, pale ales and non-alcoholic refreshments for purchase from the special fairway bars.

To really get in the mood guests are encouraged to dress to the absolute ‘nines’ for the show and make a night of it with friends and family.

Snowy Valleys Council’s Events Officer Evan Saunders says Council has previously worked with the Riverina Conservatorium of Music on a series of free community events called Snowy Ensembles which featured smaller musician ensembles playing at locations in Khancoban, Tumbarumba, Batlow and Adelong.

“The public response to those concerts was incredibly positive and we hope to see a similar level of response to this event,” Mr Saunders said.

Guests will receive a complimentary drink and entrée on arrival and temporary seating will be provided. People are also welcome to bring their own camping chair if that suits.

Obsession Wines from Tumbarumba, and Tumut River Brewing Co. will be selling their locally produced beverages at the special fairway bar during the evening. A selection of non-alcoholic refreshments will also be available for purchase.

Mr Saunders said Council were proud to have local Obsession Wines and the Tumut River Brewing Co. as exclusive alcohol partners for the event.

“Combining live classical music with local wines and ales in a rustic outdoor setting is the perfect way to welcome in the festive season and enjoy all the fine things our local area has to offer,” Mr Saunders said.

Gates open at 5:30pm with the concert commencing at 6:00pm. An intermission will break up performances to allow patrons an opportunity to purchase more refreshments.

Tickets are only $50 per person and includes a complimentary drink and entrée on arrival.
