Third time lucky?

With humongous thanks to Creative Victoria and the Australia Council for the Arts, excellent colleagues Tilman Robinson and Chloë Sobek (Outlier) and I have been working on a collaborative piece that we’re debuting in my home town at the stunning Theatre Royal, and at the Melbourne Recital Centre this March.

I’m thrilled to be finally hitting the road with VDB after years of working behind the scenes, and we’ve got a very important new instrument joining us; our brand new harpsichord by Titus Crijnen!

Come and check out the lovely Donald Nicolson playing this new instrument in some gorgeous concertos by none other than JS Bach.

Chelys Germanica, Harken Well – 6th June 2021 – EVENT CANCELLED

UPDATE: Here we go again… It is with the deepest regret that we announce the cancellation of our upcoming Chelys Germanica concert in Beechworth on Sunday 6th June. We were so looking forward to getting back on stage, but with the uncertainty over the length of the current lockdown, it is impossible to proceed. We hope to reschedule for a later date, and will keep you posted. In the meantime, take care Victoria xxxxx

As concerts slowly start to pick up, Harken Well heads back to beautiful Beechworth for a wintry programme of German Baroque music this June. Join us in the glorious Beechworth Town Hall for works by Schmelzer, Rosenmüller, and Froberger, among others! 

You can pre-book via Trybooking here

Please note, all audience members will need to check in to the event with the Service Victoria app. If you don’t have a smart device, our helpful front-of-house volunteers will be able to assist you. 

Looking forward to seeing you there!
