 ‘Our Golden Thread’

We are pleased to announce that the instrumental music from ‘Our Golden Thread’ has been recorded and an excerpt is available to view (See Our Golden Thread page). This composition by Wendy Rowlands for string quartet and children’s choir was commissioned by Castlemaine Chamber Players in 2019 and is now available for purchase. We thank Regional Arts Victoria for supporting our grant application and funding this new musical work.

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.
