Virtuoso classical musicians, Eve Newsome (oboe) and Patrick Nolan (flute), will bring the timeless beauty of some of the greatest woodwind works to life in a program of duets and solos, performed in the intimate surrounds of the gracious old Queenslander at the base of the Tweed Valley’s iconic mountain.

The 2012 Dinner Concert Series is being presented tomorrow night by Mavis’s Kitchen and the Tyalgum Festival Committee and the program will also include a medieval duet and a short demonstration of the cor anglais instrument by Eve Newsome.

‘These dinner concerts are a rare treat for Tweed music lovers, giving audiences the chance to enjoy a variety of international styles in a very intimate setting,’ said concert organiser, Alexsandra Wilkinson.

‘This third concert will immerse audiences in the hauntingly beautiful melodies of oboe and flute, as well as providing an opportunity to hear and learn more about the rarely heard cor anglais instrument.’

Music aside, the three-course dinner alone is worth the $70 ticket price. Bookings are essential and vegetarians should order when booking.
