MESSAGE FROM HER EXCELLENCY MS QUENTIN BRYCE AC ACOGOVERNOR-GENERAL OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA
As Patron of Southern Cross Soloists I have looked on with pride witnessing the ensemble grow and sustain a long-term position in the Australian classical music scene. It is the friendly spirit and nature of the ensemble, and their stylish and elegant performances that endear them to audiences across the country.
Across their 18 year history, the group has earned a reputation as one of the fi nest chamber music ensembles in Australia. This reputation is earned from their busy schedule of national performances, at the Bangalow Music Festival in northern NSW and the award-winning Sunwater and Stanwell Winter Music School. These bring outstanding opportunities to music students from rural centres of Queensland.
I had the pleasure of welcoming the Southern Cross Soloists to Government House last September. The ensemble delivered a beautiful program of music to the delight of all in attendance.
I wish Southern Cross Soloists all the best for their activities in 2013.
Southern Cross Soloists, including inaugural intern, Macarthur Clough, (clarinet) with Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC ACO
It is with great pleasure that I welcome the Southern Cross Soloists back to the Concert Hall stage for their 2013 season.
Building on a remarkably successful year which increased their audience reach and broadened their repertoire, the Southern Cross Soloists 2013 concert series once again offers a diverse selection of familiar classics, little known works and world premieres. It will not only showcase the individual talents of QPACs ensemble in residence, but offer the opportunity for collaboration with internationally renowned soloists.
QPAC is committed to supporting the activities of this fi ne chamber ensemble from the presentation of their annual series to featuring their talents in events such as the Out of the Box festival for children and Brisbane Open House.
Congratulations to Creative Director Tania Frazer and all of the members of the ensemble for their ongoing commitment to the development of chamber music in Australia.
Im sure that you will enjoy Sunday afternoons with the Southern Cross Soloists.
Being Artistic Director Laureate of this long established and fi ne chamber ensemble gives me a large amount of pride. I am delighted to see the groups many pursuits throughout the annual season of events remaining vibrant, eclectic and relevant. With the benefi t of being able to watch the continued growth from 2000 kilometres away, I can honestly and proudly say that SxS has created a signifi cant and valuable mark on the Australian music scene. I look forward to playing for you in 2013.
Welcome to 2013 with Southern Cross Soloists and an exceptional program brimming with fi rst time soloists and music from traditional through to the modern day.
In usual SxS style we are again pushing boundaries and defying conventions as we celebrate our 18th year as one of the few permanent chamber ensembles in Australia. We are delighted to be returning to the ambience of the superb QPAC Concert Hall for our 2013 series as ensemble in residence.
We have three exquisite soloists this year all new to Southern Cross Soloists.
Deutsche Grammophon Artist and Grammy award nominee, Avi Avital, is taking the world by storm with the beautiful strains of his mandolin and this will be his inaugural trip to Australia (actually to the Southern Hemisphere). Plus this will also be our fi rst ever concert with a mandolin guest soloist.
Our second concert will be a knockout with gregarious, rogue percussion soloist Timothy Constable and the exquisite dancing of Kimberly Davis, Stacey McCallum and Shane Weatherby, choreographed by Rosetta Cook from 2ballerinas.
For our third concert we are thrilled to welcome our fi rst guest solo cellist and what a cellist Li-Wei Qin is! Silver medalist at the 2001 Tchaikovsky Competition and 2002 Young Australian of the Year, Li-Wei is now an internationally acclaimed cello soloist and Universal Music recording artist. We are certainly looking forward to hearing his electrifying virtuosity, glorious sound and superb musicianship.
2013 will be yet another vintage year with something to capture everyones imagination. So see you on Sundays in 2013 sit back and indulge in our afternoon chamberfest!
