Bach to the Bush concert - Anthony Albrecht

A touring musician with a passion for Bach will be performing at Innisfail's Con Theatre on Monday night.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council is hosting Anthony Albrecht's 'Bach to the Bush' concert at Innisfail's Con Theatre on Monday 7 August.

The concert is on Monday August 7 at 7pm. Doors open at 6.30pm. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for concession holders, $5 for students and free for children under 10 years of age.  They are available at the door and via www.anthonyalbrecht.yapsody.com

Bach to the Bush is a two-hour recital with a wine and cheese interval organised by the Friends of the Con.

Albrecht is on a three month tour of the east coast of Australia and will be performing two of Bach's solo cello suites during his recital at the Con which will also include short works of Bach's for cello and some discussion about Bach's music.

Bach is regarded as one of classical music's greatest composers of all time.

Albrecht says he is all about relating Bach's music to 21st century audiences.

He began playing the cello as a seven-year-old in Newcastle and has since played and studied overseas, founding New Vintage Baroque in New York before returning to Australia with a focus on bringing concerts to regional areas.
