Forget election dilemmas on Saturday.

You can vote at Tyalgum, move down the hill to the 1908 Tyalgum Community Hall and be refreshed and enchanted by the performers at the Tyalgum Festival of Classical Music.

Now in its twenty-second year, music director Jenni Hibbard has engaged an eclectic and vibrant mix of professional and emerging musicians to beguile and entertain.

Featured in the Bright Sparks program on Saturday is Stefan Cassomenos, winner of the Tyalgum Festival $1,000 prize at the recent Lev Vlassenko piano competition.

Another highlight will be the Brew Guitar Duo playing the especially commissioned world premiere of Green Cauldron followed by William Barton (didgeridoo) and Anthony Garcia (guitar).

And who could resist the energy and precision of the Brisbane based Camerata of St John in a program titled ‘Baroque to Gypsies’, the grand finale on Sunday afternoon.

This, and much more, all tucked in behind Mt Warning in the historic village of Tyalgum.

Sunshine, food, mountains and music.
