ARTISTIC DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

Dear Friends of the Coast Recital Society,

The Coast Recital Society is dedicated to the presentation of the finest recitals and chamber music for Sunshine Coast audiences. Our new season continues and augments that tradition of excellence.

For almost three decades, we have presented both established musicians as well as those at an early stage of their career.

Our programming covers a broad range of repertoire – much that is familiar, but also frequently compositions that may well be a discovery for our audience. Excellence is always the guiding principle.

As you scroll through our past presentations, you’ll see the list of every musician — “the best and the brightest” — that has performed for us over the years, and an amazing list it certainly is.

Our community musical footprint extends well beyond our main subscription series concerts. The CRS Artists in the Community outreach program brings our superb musicians to eldercare residences and to schools. Outstanding performances for seniors offer a meaningful and most personal experience. For the youth on the Sunshine Coast, we organize school concerts, workshops, and offer scholarships for students studying classical music.

Donations from subscribers, sponsors, and various levels of government are vital to the wellbeing of the CRS. We thank you all for your enthusiastic support.

Welcome to the 2020/2021 CRS Proposed Concert Season.
