Now, guess what’s next? Music By The Sea turns 25 on July 2. Yes, thank you but hold the applause for a bit.

One of the country’s most distinguished living composers, Elena Kats-Chernin, and renowned ARIA award winning pianist, Tamara-Anna Cislowska have been invited to celebrate. And so have you.

Tamara will perform a selection of Elena’s inspirational collection. The playlist also includes a movement close to our hearts, our very own Sandgate Sonata.

Elena said, “Firstly congratulations to Zoli Mauritz, and for 25 years of his inspirational Music By The Sea series - we are delighted to be back to help celebrate this impressive milestone and thrilled to perform some of the Sandgate Sonata, that Zoli commissioned and Tamara premiered in 2016. I remember vividly the few days I spent exploring the incredible nature and history of these parts: the birds, the frogs, the stunning scenery and the train that brought people out for a day at the beach, the church bells... it inspired me to start writing this sonata almost immediately, before I even left Sandgate. Happy birthday Music By The Sea, we’re looking forward to being back in July!”

Since 1997, Director Zoli Mauritz has showcased artists of this high calibre in his iconic monthly concert series. Then from 2002 to 2018 he presented annual three day festivals.

And so they came, and continue to come from across the country and around the world, bringing the best of classical, folk, jazz and world music to us. Will you applaud now, or save it for the night?
