Peninsula Chamber Musicians has a busy few months ahead.
Formed in 2013, Peninsula Chamber Musicians has rapidly developed into an outstanding presence in the artistic landscape of the Mornington Peninsula. Whether performing intimate chamber recitals or as the energetic Peninsula Chamber Orchestra, the group seeks to touch the hearts of concert goers and inspire the next generation of performers. PCM invites Primary and Secondary school students to attend their family friendly and engaging concerts free of charge.
President, Anthony Pope, emphasises the importance of supporting local music. ‘Live Local, Listen Local is core to our values.’
In conjunction with the Shire’s Positive Aging Department, offering transport to concerts for the elderly continues to be a priority.
PCM’s chamber ensembles have provided entertainment in local libraries, local aged care facilities, art gallery openings and for private functions. The powerhouse of the group, the Peninsula Chamber Orchestra engages musicians from across the Peninsula and beyond in energetic and family friendly performances. Led by Artistic Director Andrew Hall (MSO), the Chamber Orchestra has worked with guest soloists Amir Farid, Eric Kennedy, Helen Ireland, Isin Cakmakcioglu and Caroline Almonte.
Their Concert season will be expanding the Chamber Music series to Flinders for two extra concerts in 2020. Peninsula Chamber Musicians are incredibly grateful for the support of the Mornington Peninsula Shire, Bendigo Bank, Crittenden Estate, Common Folk & Beleura House.
