Enjoy a special and relaxing Sunday afternoon overlooking Sydney Harbour to the elegant sounds of piano, flute and string quartet. Taking a fresh new look at chamber music, contemporary artist Mark Sebastian Wolfe has composed a masterful, colourful and transportive concert experience. Discover this new art music within the beautiful surrounds of Watsons Bay - a perfect Sunday afternoon.
The view from the grounds at St Peter's Church, Watsons Bay is one of the most spectacular. The Church is home to Australia's reputedly oldest pipe organ, a 1796 Robert & William Gray. A humble national treasure in need for restoration, all proceeds from the concert will contribute to the restoration of the historic organ for future generations to enjoy and admire.
Doors open at 2pm. The concert runs from 2.30pm - 3.30pm. Refreshments will be served and tours of the old church and viewing of the historic Baroque Organ will take place from 3.30pm - 4.30pm.
