Since their formation in 2002 Nexas Quartet have premiered countless new Australian works and collaborated with the finest musicians, theatre and dance companies. At the forefront of Australian chamber music, they are dedicated to presenting innovative, invigorating and exciting chamber music of the highest calibre. Their debut album ‘Current’ is a reflection of their collaboration with leading Australian composers, described by Stephanie Eslake for limelight as ‘a riveting release’ 4.5/5 stars. Early 2017 the quartet recorded ‘Ballads of a Pleasant Life’ for ABC Classics with renowned baritone Peter Coleman-Wright AO. This collaboration also resulted in the show ‘Composers in Exile’ described thus by Bill Stephens for Arts

Review:‘the brilliance of the five performers, their easy charm and obvious affection and enthusiasm for the material, proved a seductive combination in a presentation which informed the mind while pleasuring the soul’.

Men's Shed Chorale - performance Sunday 27th August 2023 @ 2pm


Sutherland Arts Centre, 25 East Parade Sutherland




The Men’s Shed Chorale was formed in 2012 by a couple of men who had been singing together for many years. They decided that they wanted to form a choir to sing in a relaxed way, aiming to produce the highest quality music that they could, while encouraging a highly social atmosphere. At first, a few singers sang around a piano at one of their homes, followed by lunch. The group has now developed into a choir which has performed over 150 concerts all over the Sydney area. The Chorale is in great demand for entertainment in retirement homes and as a fundraiser for churches and clubs.


The Lurline Chamber Orchestra - performance Sunday 12th November @ 2pm

Sutherland Arts Centre, 25 East Parade Sutherland


The Lurline Chamber Orchestra comprises a core of 11 fabulous string players who all agree that creating a vibrant, dedicated group to perform some of the most fulfilling, exciting, beautiful, varied repertoire was a terrific idea! Working together is a joy and a never-ending source of discovery.

We have spent a few years creating our own series of public concerts, and we had a ball performing these! Right now we are enjoying being engaged with festivals, choirs, concerts.
