Mt Barker Violin & Guitar Duo – Sold Out Concert for The Freemasons

Here’s a review from the I Love Mt Barker website:

Music In The Hills:

Recently I was made aware of the concerts at the Prince of Wales Lodge in Mount Barker and I was intrigued to come along to the most recent concert featuring Aleksandr Tsiboulski – one of Australia’s finest classical guitarists and Anne Horton on violin who recently was a part of the Australian String Quartet.

Now let me just preface this and say that attending a classical music concert is not normally my first choice in activities.

My knowledge of the subject is limited, to say the least, and I certainly won’t attempt a full-scale review of the event.

In saying this I must say that I was truly impressed by the World Class talent that played on Saturday Evening. Aleksandr Tsiboulski was simply amazing on the guitar and played beautifully – at times incredibly it seemed he was playing by feel only with his eyes shut!

Anne Horton played in duet with Mr. Tsiboulski and her performance was equally as impressive. I have been told that seeing a classical guitarist and violin in duet is a rarity and I feel privileged to have been a part of the audience.

The venue is The Prince of Wales Lodge and is located off Hutchinson Street. It provides a relaxing and refined setting for the enjoyment of world-class classical music. Set in the majestic and historic surrounds of the oldest Freemasons Lodge in the Hills – an evening at the Prince of Wales is an experience like no other.

Looking for something different to do? Make sure you get along to the next concert – they are held monthly.

Private concert event for the ANZ Design team at Rutherglen House, Melbourne featuring Opera Australia star Lorina Gore singing three accompanied arias, including O Mio Babbino Caro, and Andrea Keller performing jazz piano.

Lorina was delightful. She was stunning to look at and her voice was amazing. She engaged with the audience and broke down all barriers. The venue suited her absolutely. Her accompanist was extremely skilled and sympathetic to Lorina’s voice. They were an excellent duo. It was a privilege to have them perform for us. – Robin
