ONE of Aus­tralia’s most lauded cham­ber en­sem­bles, Melba Quar­tet, will be ser­e­nad­ing Heath­cote on Oc­to­ber 17.

Melba Quar­tet is made up of mu­si­cians who worked to­gether as the Aus­tralian String Quar­tet un­til 1996, estab­lish­ing it as an im­por­tant na­tional and in­ter­na­tional ensem­ble.

In­cred­i­bly, the tick­ets are just $10 for the world-class per­for­mance at St John’s Angli­can Church.

Melba Quar­tet will be mak­ing its way through Heath­cote as part of a coun­try tour that will also take the mu­si­cians to El­more and Boort.

The act has proved very pop­u­lar and it once earned a glow­ing re­view in The

Aus­tralian news­pa­per. “The in­au­gu­ral recital of the Melba Quar­tet is a cause for cel­e­bra­tion. This con­cert pro­vided in­stant proof that a sig­nif­i­cant new Aus­tralian string ensem­ble has been launched,” it read.

It prom­ises to be a spec­tac­u­lar show and one that Heath­cote will not for­get in a hurry.
