In this special pre-festival concert, enjoy the rare opportunity of hearing stunning music presented in the intimacy of Eudlo Hall, one of Sunshine Coast region’s most charming small halls.

Pianist, Alex Raineri, described by Limelight Magazine as a ‘soloist of superb skill’ presents Nature Spirit, a varied and colourful program about nature and birdsong inspired by the beauty of the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Then in a contrasting second half, Homegrown, is striking new music written especially for the acclaimed Muses Trio. 2021 marks the Trio’s nineth concert season together and their third album release by ABC Classics for their Women of Note series. Nurtured in 2019, and recorded in late 2020, this program celebrates our incredible female composers from across Australia.
