 ‘Our Golden Thread’

A new composition by Wendy Rowlands for children’s choir and string quartet will be premiered in Castlemaine in June.

7.00 pm, Saturday 13th June, 2020
Castlemaine Town Hall

Students from eight local primary schools are joining together to form a massed children’s choir. The Castlemaine Chamber Players string quartet is busy rehearsing and we are excited and enthusiastic about the new piece, with its themes of connection and community.

This project is made possible by a grant from Regional Arts Victoria and auspiced by the Castlemaine Community House.

The Castlemaine Chamber Players perform a variety of music composed for string ensemble, from duos, trios and quartets to larger ensembles. Music such as Schubert’s Quintet and the Brahms’ Sextets; works of great musical and expressive power yet less often played because their performance requires a different mix of instruments. As well as playing masterworks from the Classical and Romantic music styles, they explore contemporary Australian compositions. Guest performers join the group for specific performances.
