In the period between each festival Arts in the Valley has offered a concert weekend, or weekends, of classical and contemporary music.
More than one guest commented on the lack of female representation among the artists at our May 2015 festival. Sadly they were right and we had only one female performer on stage. We compensated at our June concerts in 2016 with an all-female line up. We secured Emma Matthews, Australia’s most feted soprano, to come and sing for us. Emma was accompanied by international concert pianist, Bernadette Harvey for our Saturday night concert.
We followed this on Sunday with one of Australia’s best loved composers, Elena Kats-Chernin and Tamara Anna Cislowska playing duets of Elena’s music.
