Located in the heart of the South West’s premier wine region, Happs is the perfect venue to take in the breathtaking landscape, sunshine and, of course, the local produce – superb food and wine.
From 12.30 on October 4th, the Barrel Room Recital brings internationally acclaimed classical musicians Louise McKay (cello) and Anna Sleptsova (piano) to a stage set among the wine barrels.
This event promises to be a feast for the senses – the aromatic and visual qualities of the barrel room, combined with the sounds of the cello and piano duo and the food to follow; are sure to delight.
Tickets include canapés and drinks on arrival and during the interval a gourmet lunch, whilst ice-cream, coffee and Happs Wines will be available for purchase throughout the day.
Pianist Anna Sleptsova arrived in Australia in 1995, following an extensive recital and solo career through Eastern Europe, Germany, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Australia, United States, France, and Japan. Anna has since made numerous live and studio recordings for ABC Classic FM, been featured on ABC TV and now coordinates piano studies at WAAPA.
Louise McKay joined the West Australian Symphony Orchestra as the Associate Principal Cellist in July 2011. She completed her postgraduate Artist Diploma at the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles after moving from Perth to study in Melbourne and Adelaide. Earlier this year, Louise was a featured soloist at the Adelaide International Cello Festival and was also a guest of the Perth International Arts Festival for the Playmakers program in Albany.
