Music in the Regions


July 22-31. Music in the Regions brings Omega Ensemble’s Winter Regional tour to the Central West of NSW.

One of Australia’s most dynamic chamber music groups – Omega Ensemble – is headlining Music in the Regions’ Winter tour across the Central West region of NSW from 22 July to 31 July.

The Winter Regional Tour will see Omega Ensemble perform a high-energy program, from Mozart’s cherished Clarinet Quintet to the world premiere of a new contemporary Australian work by Australian composer Carl Vine.

The Ensemble is performing at Forbes, Parkes, Canowindra, Kandos, Portland and Oberon, and will also take part in community engagement events in partnership with regional conservatoriums at Orange and Bathurst.

Music in the Regions Executive Director, Janine Collins, said: “We are delighted to bring musicians of this calibre to a variety of interesting regional venues in the Central West, including historical former cement works The Foundations in Portland, All Saints’ Anglican Church in Canowindra, and the heritage Malachi Gilmore Hall in Oberon.

“Omega Ensemble are lauded nationwide for their exceptional world-class performances, an incredible cultural experience these regional audiences would usually have to travel to a city for but can now enjoy close to home.”
