A sincere thank you to everyone who supported our annual Fundraiser Concert & High Tea on 26 August 2023!
We are incredibly grateful for your generous support and hope you thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon filled with
exquisite music, scrumptious food and wonderful company.
The outstanding performers, pianist, Vatche Jambazian (Omega Ensemble) and 'cellist Hyung Suk Bae
(Acting Principal Cellist Queensland Symphony Orchestra) presented a sublime program of music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann and Australian composer, Adrian Bell, who we were delighted to have in attendance.
Due to your generous beneficence, $5,336 was raised that will go directly towards presenting the 2024 Bowral Autumn Music Festival. This support enables us to continue to present concerts of the highest calibre, providing performance opportunities for established Australian Performers and Composers, whilst offering Workshops during our Education Days and encouraging the emerging Artists of the future amongst our extremely talented local students.
To be able to present such a festival in our exquisitely beautiful region is a great privilege and
we are extremely thankful for your interest and generosity.
