Celebrate the end of the year with this rare opportunity to hear one of the Hunter Region’s finest musical exports. Cellist Anthony Albrecht, known for his “dramatic flair” and “fluent and virtuosic” performances (Seen and Heard International, Sydney Morning Herald) will perform two recitals at Adamstown and Woodville.

Anthony invites you to escape the Christmas mania by immersing yourself in the sounds of his 300-year-old cello. Since graduating from The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program in 2014, Anthony has become a passionate advocate for classical music touring in regional Australia. He is renowned for his accessible, informative and moving “Bach to the Bush” solo recitals, in which he performs two of J.S. Bach’s cello suites and other works for baroque cello, interspersed with fascinating commentary.

Anthony was a soloist and featured performer at the 2017 Newcastle Music Festival, and returns to Australia regularly from his home in London to play with groups such as Pinchgut Opera, the Australian Haydn Ensemble and Adelaide Baroque. Bring your friends for a beautiful afternoon get together, either at Adamstown Arts at Adamstown Uniting Church on the 22nd of December or the Woodville School of Arts Hall on the 23rd of December.
