Of Magic and Madness

Last month, Sydney Mozart Society members enjoyed an excellent concert from the Verbrugghen Ensemble. We are pleased to pass on news from the Sydney Conservatorium about the next  concert in the Verbrugghen Ensemble's own concert series. It's another opportunity to enjoy  great music presented with the Ensemble's masterful technique and vibrant performance syle.



Sydney Conservatorium of Music  presents:

It is our pleasure to invite you to hear the Verbrugghen Ensemble, ensemble in residence at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Of Magic and Madness is the finale of the first season of the new Verbrugghen Ensemble. This performance will feature the entire ensemble performing a striking new work by Con composer Matthew Hindson: This Year’s Apocalypse, followed by the gorgeous and lyrical Sextour Mystique by Hector Villa Lobos.
