Snowy Ensembles Concerts Continue in Tumbarumba

Published on 24 July 2019


Locals and visitors can enjoy another free Snowy Ensembles musical performance by musicians from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music this weekend in Tumbarumba.

This Sunday the 28th of July from 2pm the Snowy Ensembles concert series continues in Tumbarumba with a ‘Guitar and Friends’ concert being held at the Memorial Hall on Winton Street.

Council’s Acting Director of Strategy, Community & Development Phil Stone said the events are a great way for families and visitors to experience a little bit of culture in the Snowy Valleys during the quieter, colder months. 

“Partnering with the Riverina Conservatorium of Music is part of Council’s commitment to supporting the arts and providing free cultural experiences for locals and visitors,” Mr Stone said.

This weekend’s Tumbarumba event, Guitar and Friends, features the combination of guitar, violin, viola, cello and flute to create a spell binding afternoon for local music lovers. 

Opening with a set of intoxicating tangos for flute and guitar by the inimitable Astor Piazzolla, the sextet will continue with a new work by Australian Richard Charlton, the evocative "Shorelines", for guitar and string quartet. To close, Luigi Boccherini's Quintet in D with its surprise Fandango finish will have audiences dancing in the aisles.

Snowy Ensembles is a series of fine musical performances being held across the Snowy Valleys from June through to September in Khancoban, Tumbarumba, Batlow and Adelong.

Last month, Khancoban were hosts to the first concert where music lovers were treated to a stellar performance from a group of string and woodwind musicians from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music, at the local Khancoban Alpine Inn.

Each Snowy Ensembles concert begins at 2pm and admission is free for all ages.
