Our 2019 Series

Our 2019 Series

In 2019 we have already performed 31 concerts and completed two of our five 2019 subscription tours. Over the past seven years, the ensemble has worked hard to build up an audience in Sydney. AHE is also one of the few groups who tour regularly to regional NSW as part of their subscription series. We love taking our performances to our wonderful friends and followers in these locations which include the Southern Highlands, Berry, Newcastle and Canberra (ACT).  We still have three subscription tours planned for the remainder of 2019 and although we have many wonderful supporters, there is still a significant way to go to cover the expenses of  presenting these tours for which we have received no government funding. Your donation will help us to meet the costs of these tours.

Regional NSW Tour

Regional NSW Tour

In February 2019, four members of the Ensemble undertook a 14 day regional tour of NSW, covering about 2,000 kms, performing six concerts and seven workshops. During their visits to a number of local schools and music classes they spoke to students about being a professional musician, and inspired them through imparting their extensive historical performance knowledge. Overall the tour brought music to over 800 new people in our regional communities. To ensure that the Ensemble can build on this tour, offer more concerts and masterclass experiences to more students across regional Australia please consider a donation to our appeal. Every donation will make a difference.

String Workshops

String Workshops

Recently the Ensemble worked with a group of approximately 40 students from Oxley College and The Southern Highlands Christian School in a series of string workshop sessions. The students worked with the Ensemble on Vivaldi’s G Minor Sinfonia and Vortex, focusing on elements of historical performance practice. The workshops culminated with a performance for the parents and teachers of the schools. Students had the opportunity to play and perform alongside AHE professionals. In order to further extend our reach and bring more workshops to more students, we need your help. Please consider contributing to our campaign.
