Live Music

GB-Deni-trysize (002) Reschedule

South West Music Regional Conservatorium are thrilled to confirm the return of world‑renowned classical guitar duo, Leonard and Slava Grigoryan, for their last concert of the ‘An evening with the Grigoryan Brothers’ series that was unexpectedly cut short earlier this year due to the birth of Slava’s third child. A boy, Sebastian Leonard.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Slava has just won the highly coveted ARIA Award for Best Classical Album for the second year running! Only the fifth time in ARIA Award history that an artist has won consecutive awards in this category.

Justifiably considered Australia’s finest guitar duo, Slava and Leonard will be performing not only the instrument’s standard classical repertoire but their own new arrangements, compositions and commissions, taking the guitar into the realms of folk, jazz and contemporary. There is something for everyone at this very special live event.

As with all of South West Music concerts, people under 18 attend free, making this a wonderful family activity and an opportunity for parents to expose kids to quality musical performances.

Encouraging attendees to a real night out, The Crossing are offering a pre-performance dinner from 5.30pm. Dinner bookings should be made early and direct with The Crossing (5881 7827) to ensure you don’t miss out!

South West Music is thrilled to present four time ARIA Award nominated and Australia’s finest guitar duo, the Grigoryan Brothers’.

Grigoryan Brothers poster (002)

Performing much of the instrument’s standard classical repetoire, the Brothers’ passion is to expand their horizons through new arrangements, their own compositions and commissions, taking the guitar into genres such as jazz, folk and contemporary music. There are no boundaries, resulting in a dimension to guitar-playing rarely seen in the musical world.

The Grigoryan Brothers have a reputation of performing together so emphatically, they become extensions of each other. Courier Mail

The brothers have also performed with symphony orchestras and at international festivals in Australia and Europe.

Slava and Leonard belong in a special category of excellence. The West Australian

Sky High Opera

Deniliquin 14 April – book tickets

South West Music Regional Conservatorium is bringing Sky High Opera to Deniliquin.

The Opera is being performed by Co-Opera, Australia’s operatic troubadours for 27 years. This wacky production, brimming with laughter and sumptuous costumes, will bring the magic of that tradition to audiences in Deniliquin.

The Barber of Seville is the best known and most popular work in comic opera. This production, set in the Australian goldfields of the 1880’s, will show why. Featuring the most famous tune in opera, it is a must-see for anyone who loves a good laugh, good music and a good night out.

The Sky High Opera on 14 April 2018 will form part of a weekend of celebrations at the airport, including the Deniliquin Aero Club fly-in and mini air show and the opening celebrations for the first stage of the WW2 No7 SFTS Heritage Centre. We are lucky enough to present the Opera in the Wettenhall Air Services hangar, which is an original hangar from when the airport was a WW2 Service Flying Teaching School.

Seating is allocated and tickets are now on sale online and from South West Music – 03 5811 4736.

Co-Opera’s The Barber of Seville

Rossini’s comic caper ‘The Barber of Seville’ is a story of mistaken identity, misplaced affection, and the mysteries and mischief of young love. It is considered to be one the greatest masterpieces of comedy within music and has remained hugely popular for the two hundred years since its creation.
The cast features some of Australia’s finest emerging opera artists accompanied by chamber orchestra, conducted by Josh van Konkelenberg.
Rosina, the beautiful young ward of the grasping Doctor Bartolo is kept locked up in the house with only a window to see the world outside. Her only pleasure is her weekly music lessons with the slippery Don Basilio and the questionable company of her grumpy maid Bertha.
One day through her window she hears and then sees a dashing young man who immediately sets her heart racing. She must meet him, but how? With the help of her trusty and conniving friend Figaro, the barber of Seville, she will do anything to find the stranger whom she loves.
A comic drama of mistaken identities, and misdirection ensues as two very different men vie for her affections.
“In contrast to the sometimes brash and crude characters, Rossini’s glittering score and ensemble writing makes for a scintillating and gripping evening of theatre.” – Joshua van Konkelenberg (conductor)
