NOVEMBER 15

WELCOME

Exhilarating, moving and optimistic music from the 1960s to the present, performed by outstanding Tasmanian instrumentalists. An ensemble as much about sharing the music and building a new audience as it is about the music itself.

 

“This is the coolest new musical initiative in Hobart for some time.” – The Mercury

“Opus House has gathered together a roster of some of the finest instrumentalists around to present contemporary music, at once edgy but accessible, soulful and vital.” – The Mercury

“The mood was friendly and informal, the music attractive and involving.” – The Mercury

 

Opus House will present three concerts for its 2013 opening season. The group has been established to present exciting, engaging and moving music of quality to an expanding audience in ways that are inviting, enjoyable and relevant, supported by intelligent and inventive marketing and presentation. Opus House’s mission is to present highlights from the emerging canon of new music while supporting Tasmania’s best instrumentalists through engagement and appropriate remuneration. The ensemble comprises a core of nine musicians, utilising augmenting players as programs require.

Opus House is supported by Before Creative, Creative Partnerships AustraliaGovernment House and the Minister for the Arts through Arts Tasmania.
