Music in the Round
MUSIC IN THE ROUND 2018
Abbotsford Convent is delighted to once again present Music in the Round on Sunday 9 September 2018, featuring a stunning array of beloved classical musicians lighting up the Convent's heritage spaces.
This year's Music in the Round offers a specially-curated program of performances, plus the opportunity to mingle with some of the featured artists at an exclusive grazing-style luncheon – catered by the award-winning Bursaria Fine Foods.
In 2018, Music in the Round will embrace home-grown talent of an international calibre, with an array of exceptional Australian musicians who have enjoyed international success.
From the youngest-ever winner of the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition in Geneva (2018), 10 year-old Christian Li, to internationally-renowned Australian pianists Kristian Chong and Stephen McIntyre, and internationally-trained ensemble Latitude 37 and Daniel de Borah, these musicians are sure to wow and delight.
ABOUT MUSIC IN THE ROUND
Music in the Round launched in 1972, with celebrated violinist Paul McDermott and the Australian Musicians’ Guild creating the event to showcase Australia’s leading chamber musicians. After debuting at Monsalvat and then moving to Werribee Mansion, it was relocated to the Abbotsford Convent in 1977. For nine years, Music in the Round delighted audiences with an innovative program that featured spectacular concerts set within historical spaces. Marking the tenth birthday of the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF), Music in the Round was brought back to the Convent in 2014.
