“Classical music the world over” is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne who will be performing in Bundaberg on Monday, 24 June 2019.
It is irrelevant for the musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in a great cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House; their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
They want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music.
The popularity of the ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear.
The German city is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching.
Generations of musicians have been trained there for many decades.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. Tours are made regularly to New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland and many other countries.
Every member of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gets the opportunity to perform as a soloist.
The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces.
The real appeal of the program lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs.
This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango” Astor Piazzolla.
This mix promises great diversity of the very highest order and an entertaining show.
The Bundaberg performance is at Holy Rosary Church from 7pm Monday. Tickets are $30 each from Bout Time Music or cash at the door.
