TOP TOURING PERFORMANCE TO VISIT ARMIDALE LATE THIS YEAR

Tuesday, 16 August 2016

A RARE performance will come to Armidale late this year, with support from the NSW Government’s Performing Arts Touring funding program.

Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said Armidale would host the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s 17-piece string ensemble ACO Collective at the Armidale Town Hall.

“I am tremendously excited that this production is coming to our region,” Mr Marshall said.

“We have a community that is very receptive and appreciative of this sort of art, and considerable in-house talent working in these genres.

“It’s of great benefit for everyone to have rare new talent on show right in your backyard, especially for those up and coming artists in our community.

“Our local community will also have the opportunity to engage directly with the touring performers at workshops, forums and educational activities that will accompany performances.”

Performance dates and ticket information will be made available soon.

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said almost $300,000 in shared program support funding had been provided this round of the Performing Arts Touring category to bring quality, entertaining and educational productions to audiences throughout regional NSW.

“This funding not only provides adults and children with the opportunity to attend a variety of performances, it also creates jobs for artists and arts workers and showcases performers to new audiences across regional NSW,” Mr Grant said.

“One of the key aims of the NSW Government’s Create in NSW 10-year policy framework is ensuring people have access to a diverse range of arts experiences no matter where they live.”
