ARTISTIC DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

Dear Friends of the Coast Recital Society,

The new CRS season continues our tradition of presenting the finest recitals and chamber music for Sunshine Coast audiences. The roster features an exceptional line-up of musicians—new generation debut artists as well as the welcome return of CRS favorites. The repertoire will range from Bach, Schubert and Brahms to Beethoven, Bartók and Szymanowski. Some works will be familiar, while some compositions may well prove to be a discovery.

Our extensive Artists in the Community program features events in schools and eldercare residences, as well as scholarships and master classes for our youth.

Support from subscribers, local businesses and various levels of government makes this all possible.

Last season, cellist Alban Gerhardt and pianist Steven Osborne performed a memorable concert for us. Alban and his “Lonely Cello” have travelled the world. Here is Alban’s snapshot of his “Lonely Cello” on the ferry to Langdale—a wonderful image, so evocative of the artistic excellence that is the hallmark of the CRS.

Welcome to the 2018-2019 CRS Concert Season.
