Friday 26th May 6:00pm for 6:30pm

The Orange Regional Conservatorium is excited to announce that ASQ will be performing this May 26th, with special guest, guitar virtuoso Slava Grigoryan. Performing their Migrationconcert program in full, with works by Schubert, Iain Grandage and Ralph Towner this will be a truly special event.

For over 30 years, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable chamber music experiences for national and international audiences. From its home base at the University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium of Music, the ASQ reaches out across Australia and the world to engage people with an outstanding program of performances.

The Quartet members are Dale Barltrop (Violin), Francesca Hiew (Violin), Stephen King (Viola) and Sharon Draper (Cello). The distinct sound of the ASQ is enhanced and unified by its matched set of 18th century Guadagnini instruments, handcrafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between (circa) 1743 and 1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy. They are on loan to the ASQ for their exclusive use through the generosity of Ulrike Klein and UKARIA.

In this special concert the ASQ will be joined by guest artist, classical guitar virtuoso, Slava Grigoryan.

Slava Grigoryan is regarded as a “wizard” of the guitar with a talent for bewitching his audiences. At just eighteen, Grigoryan, was on his first tour after being signed to the Sony Classical Label. This tour was with guitar legends Paco Peña and Leo Kottke. Since then he’s travelled the world as a soloist and with orchestras in Australia, Europe, Asia and North America, and performed at dozens of national and international arts, music and guitar festivals. Slava has won ARIA awards for Best Classical Album and released over 20 solo and collaborative albums.

We welcome back Slava Grigoryan and the Australian String Quartet to the ORC for this unique concert experience.

Tim Clarkson Trio – 7th April

Experience one of Australia’s most exciting Jazz trios perform once again at the ORC. Featuring Tim Clarkson on Saxophone, Brendan Clarke on Bass and Cameron Reid on Drums.

The Tim Clarkson Trio is an intimate band with bite to their playing. They bring together elements of music often at odds with each other: their compositions can be rhythmically and melodically intricate, but in spite of this a sense of groove, melodicism and quirky playfulness permeates the band. With a sense of space and occasion, it is music that gets both the head and the heart, not one at expense of the other.
