Sublime Voices
The purity of 17 voices came together as one for the season finale of the Ngeringa Arts Concert Series. Adelaide Chamber Singers (ACS), under the direction of their founder Carl Crossin, gave a stunning performance which truly brought the hall alive! The clarity and beauty of the sound, particularly when the singers spread out through the audience, was remarkable and it was easy to hear why they were awarded Choir of the World at Llangollen, Wales.

Lyrebird Trio
Lyrebird TrioSimon Cobcroft, Principal Cellist with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra was one of the first musicians to play in the hall. We asked him and his colleagues to play for Arup in early August so they could test the acoustics before the opening. Simon recalls the experience.   

‘From the moment I set foot in the wonderful new concert hall I was spellbound, at first by the sheer beauty of the space, and then by its superb acoustic. Almost immediately, I became aware that the hall possessed that rarest coupling of qualities: absolute clarity of sound throughout, allowing every minute detail to be heard with ease, accompanied by a glorious and enveloping warmth. How exciting that this magnificent new space is here in South Australia, and what a joy it is to play there!’  

Simon returns with the Lyrebird Trio to open our 2016 season on Sunday 28 February at 3 pm. His colleagues, Glenn Christensen, violinist with the ACO and pianist Angela Turner are distinguished graduates of the Queensland Conservatorium and as a trio they were major prize winners at the Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition in 2013. For their debut at Ngeringa they will perform works by Beethoven, Nigel Westlake and Smetana. Click here to book your tickets.
