Australia House Ensemble
A Message from Australia House Ensemble:
Our ‘Reconnection’ concert approaches- on May 23rd. The Australian election will be over! Come and celebrate with the Australia House Ensemble as they return to live performance in the glorious Exhibition Hall at the High Commission for an evening of Australian and other music. From contemporary Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin’s interpretation of Piazzolla’s tango, a quintet by Schubert, to a quirky arrangement of Waltzing Matilda, the programme has something for everyone.
A welcome glass of wine will get the evening off to a good start and some Ozzie chocolate will send you on your way at the end. We look forward to welcoming you on May 23rd at 6.15pm for a 7pm start.
See you there
Dr Margaret Mayston AM

About the Australia House Ensemble
Australian musicians travel to Australia each year to perform in the Australian World Orchestra (AWO) and the Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) and highly value and enjoy the opportunity to perform with fellow Australians. This is an opportunity for London/UK based musicians to have a similar experience in the place where they are living and working.
The ensemble aspires to be a world-class ensemble featuring the finest Australian musicians in London, UK and worldwide, named the “Australia House Ensemble. This ensemble will be a flagship for Australian musical excellence of which it is hoped Australia will be proud.
