The Tenterfield School of Arts was rocking on Sunday, April 15 when the Clarence Valley Orchestra brought its Outback Proms to town. Around 90 audience members enjoyed the repertoire of traditional British prom along with selections from ‘the new country’.
The Rotary Club of Tenterfield was behind the concert, thanks to conductor Greg Butcher also being a Grafton Rotarian.
As well as enjoying the talented community orchestra patrons were supporting the Rotary’s good works.
The proms concert has been very popular at the orchestra’s Saraton Theatre base but over the weekend its 50-strong production hit the road to bring classical music to Inverell on the Saturday and then Tenterfield on the way back to the coast.
Outback Proms was just the latest in a schedule of unique cultural experiences being brought to the theatre. Following Ickypedia for the kids on May 2, the Emmanuel College Highlanders Pipe Band, Highland Dancers & Folk Group is making a stopover on May 3 on its way to Glen Innes’s Celtic Festival.
This is before Carmen courtesy of the Melbourne Opera Company appears on May 31.
