David Pereira is one of Australia's most accomplished cellists. Widely experienced, he continues to evolve as a player, teacher and composer. His playing aims for perfect listening and emotional responsiveness, uncompromised by thought or technical limitation.
Bungendore Wood Works Gallery is proud to be host for the David Pereira 2011 Cello-focused Duo Chamber Concerts featuring David Pereira on Cello with three featured accompanists Alice Giles on Harp, Adrian Walter on Classical Guitar and Geoffrey Lancaster on Fortepiano.
The concerts in March, July and November build on the success of the initial solo cello concert by David Pereira in the Gallery’s Octagon ArtSpace in late 2010 before a sold-out audience. The concert series offers friendliness and intimacy in an acoustically perfect venue, presenting music of a rigorous high quality aimed especially at passionate and dedicated listeners.
Bookings are on a reserved seating basis and strictly limited to 80. Tickets are $44 for each concert or $120 for the three concerts if booking for the full series at the Gallery or on 6238 1682
Café Woodworks will be open from 6pm prior to each concert. Bookings are essential on 6238 1688
