Being a regular concert-goer I look for concerts that surprise and delight and give me something I am not accustomed to. Music and Wine did just that. I look forward to
attending again!’- Paula Twining, Music and Wine Event
The concert was a beautiful mix of pieces with each instrument having a chance to shine. A wonderful celebration of great music and wine!’- Tracey Leslie, Music and Wine Event
The range of wines perfectly complemented the music by matching the characters and style of the two for a complete sensory experience. If you’re looking for a chamber music concert with a difference, you can’t go past the Chambermaids!!’- Andrea Farrugia, Music and Wine Event
Not surprisingly, the marriage of music and wine was always going to work. I was however surprised at just how much more I drew from the experience. Fantastic conversation with like minded audience members, descriptions of both the wine and music as well as why they were coupled, not to mention the hors d’oeuvres. I walked away feeling royally treated as well I was.
I will be attending another.
Ps. Don’t forget to buy The Chambermaids fabulous CD!- Matt Ockendon, Music and Wine Event
Reviews from School Events
No need for program notes – all the very accomplished and experienced musicians take turns to confidently explain the pieces to the audience and make the music come alive. A really fun, enjoyable concert with a few musical surprises as well!- Danielle Grant, 107 Projects Concert, Redfern
The workshop was thoroughly enjoyable as the quintet performed and gave examples of various practice techniques that they use when preparing a new piece for a concert. This was well supported by handouts and practical tips for our musicians. The success of this engaging and well pitched workshop was evidenced by a stronger emphasis on communication, a more analytical approach and greater engagement from our students in their ensemble work.- Mr Ralph Wilcock, Head of Music, St Andrew's Cathedral School
As a school without a band program it was fabulous to see our students leaving your concert knowing more about these instruments and fully participating throughout the entire concert from Kindergarten through to the older grades. Their seamless and well-orchestrated performance impressed all our staff and students. We can’t wait to have you back again.- Mrs Judy McEwen, Principal Hambledon Public School
