World renowned ARIA Award winning cellist, Daniel Yeadon, and brilliant keyboardist, Neal Peres Da Costa, will perform a concert of Vivaldi, Bach, and Rameau plus contemporary works including new Butcherbird compositions by Hollis Taylor and Jon Rose.

Entrance is free, but donations between $20-$50 are encouraged (to pay the musical guest; we don’t take anything ourselves). This concert will be outside, so bring anti-mozzie lotions. There is some concentrated listening and viewing involved, so not really suitable for small restless children.

So if you want in, register asap by emailing us at:
