Renowned String Quartet to Inspire Regional Audiences

The Orange Regional Conservatorium (ORC) will host one of Australia’s most acclaimed string quartets on Friday 9th March at 6pm. The ARIA Award nominated Acacia Quartet are an exciting group that have made a name for themselves performing music both old and new across the country to sold out audiences.
 
The ORC is passionate about bringing inspiring, world class musicians to the Central West. Musicians and students of all ages get some of their most valuable lessons from experiencing live music, seeing the interaction and passion of the performers onstage right in front of them.
 
“This is such a fantastic opportunity for string students from all over Orange to see professional musicians performing locally”, said ORC String Tutor Amy Stevens “Nothing motivates a young musician more than seeing music of this level performed right in front of their eyes.”
 
The Acacia Quartet are a versatile and inventive group who have recorded 6 albums together – three of which have earned ARIA Award nominations, featured regularly on ABC Classical FM and have climbed iTunes Top 100 charts. The group also works closely with leading composers such as Elena Kats-Chernin and perform regularly at the Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Recital Hall and several National Galleries.
 
This performance will feature the group’s Italian Serenade program, featuring music that will take the listener on a journey through Southern Europe with works by Puccini, Verdi and more. The night will be a mix of energetic new music inspired by the Mediterranean countryside and dreamy music from southern Spain and surrounds.
