Presented by Central Coast Conservatorium of Music
This year's festival presents a feast of chamber music over three days in and around Gosford, taking you on a journey through music and time.
Postponement: We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to postpone this weekend's Crossroads Chamber Music Festival due to illness. With a number of musicians falling ill this week, Central Coast Conservatorium of Music feels it is best to put the health and wellbeing of our musicians, staff and wider community first. While this is a disappointing outcome we are looking forward to bringing the festival to Central Coast audiences in October.
Fresh from playing at King Charles' coronation, Australian violinist Madeleine Easton will headline the festival, presented by Central Coast Conservatorium of Music.
Bringing together local and international chamber musicians for a weekend of performances, this year's festival will feature an exciting program of five concerts featuring one of Australia's foremost concert pianists Phillip Shovk, violinist and Bach Akademie founder Easton, the Phoenix Collective Quartet and Central Coast's Concertante Ensemble chamber orchestra.
For the past 15 years, we have been dedicated to delivering exceptional chamber music experiences to the Central Coast. We are thrilled to announce the return of our beloved three-day chamber music festival, featuring an exhilarating program of recitals that includes performances by renowned concert pianist Phillip Shovk, accomplished violinist and Bach Akademie founder Madeleine Easton, the talented Australian string quartet Phoenix Collective, and the brilliant Concertante Ensemble chamber orchestra from the Central Coast. Join us for a celebration of high-quality chamber music that is sure to captivate and inspire.
The festival will launch with a special gala opening night at Central Coast Conservatorium in Mann St at 6pm on Friday, September 8, featuring an intimate violin and piano recital by Easton and Shovk.
On Saturday there will be two concerts held in the Robert Knox Hall.
In the morning, at 11am, Shovk will present works by Scarlatti, Schubert and three pieces arranged by legendary American pianist and composer Earl Wild, including Three Etudes on Gershwin songs.
In the afternoon, the Phoenix Collective take to the stage at 3pm with a program that will include Haydn's String Quartet in D Major (The Lark) and Dvo�™ák's ‘American' String Quartet.
