A SERIES of Sunday Soirees starts on a Sunday in September with a string quartet.
McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in Langwarrin is hosting the events. The musical program kicks off with a show by the Partridge String Quartet, 2pm to 4pm on 5 September.
The performances will be held on the first Sunday of each month. McClelland director Lisa Byrne said “It is wonderful to be able to support musicians at this time with performance opportunities and to offer our community experiences that promote social connectivity and positive well-being. What better way to spend an afternoon than with friends in our beautiful setting listening to a live performance by some of the best musicians in the country. Maybe even share a grazing plate, a glass of wine, and take some time to appreciate our sculpture park and gallery.”
“From the Partridge String Quartet to the Stiletto Sisters we will be presenting a fantastic array of musicians,” she said.
Series curator, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra violinist Monica Curro, said “I am thrilled to be working with McClelland in its 50th year to bring a smorgasboard of musical events into the artistic fold of this unique Australian cultural asset. Through its cross-disciplinary artistic collaborations, McClelland ensures the continuing nourishment and vibrancy of its community.”
After the Partridge String Quartet performs in September, Sarah Curro’s Volume will be held in October. The Michelle Nicolle Quartet performs in November followed by Stilletto Sisters in December.
There will be four performances this year, and a further four in 2022. For the full program and to buy tickets visit mcclellandgallery.com
