Book Now

Celebrate a magical connection of strings and voice. Join the future opera stars of Opera Scholars Australia as they explore the power of classical music’s most intimate form.

Performing alongside one of Melbourne’s most celebrated string quartets (The Song Quartet) and maestro Rhodri Clarke on an exquisite grand piano, these Scholars will transport you to other worlds — of folk tales in taverns, of grief and of the divine. With works by Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, Brahms and more, Charmingly Chamber is sure to be an uplifting and moving musical afternoon.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be enraptured by the sounds of strings, voices and piano coming together in perfect harmony.

The performance will run until approximately 5pm with a 20 minute interval.

Rhodri Clarke

Graduated with first class honours from the Royal College of Music, London in 2004 where he specialised in piano accompaniment, studying with Nigel Clayton and Roger Vignoles. He performs internationally as an accompanist, chamber musician and as a solo pianist.

Clark subsequently lived in the Netherlands where he collaborated with members of the ROYAL CONCERTGEBOUW ORCHESTRA and worked privately as a repetiteur and freelance accompanist.

In 2010 he performed as a member of the chamber music group, the BOLIVAR SOLOISTS with the tenor Rolando Villazon on a ten concert tour of Europe, during which they performed at the BERLIN PHILHARMONIE, the VIENNA KONZERTHAUS, London’s ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL and THEATRE DES CHAMPS-ELYSEES in Paris.
