Famed German orchestra comes to Coffs

COFFS Harbour has achieved a classical music coup in securing a concert by the famed Chamber Philharmonia from Cologne, Germany.

After several successful European tours, the chamber is returning to Australia with a powerful new program, which will include a concert at St John's Anglican Church on Monday, February 15 at 8pm.

From the grandeur of some of the world's major orchestra halls and cathedrals, the Chamber Philharmonia will also perform at Melbourne's St Mary's Basilica and Sydney's St Andrews Cathedral.

"It is irrelevant for our musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House - their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time," orchestra spokesman Jens Kehling said.

"The objective is simple - we want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music.

"The popularity of our ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with our exceptionally talented musicians."

Classical music lovers will be treated to Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Mozart concertos and the classic works of Paganini and Tchaikovsky.

Tickets are available at St John's Anglican Church Parish Office, McLean St, Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm and at the door on the night from 7pm.
