Zentveld’s host the annual ‘Coffee Concert’
For one delightful hour on a sunny Friday in August, we host The Coffee Concert as a prelude of what will come over the weekend of fine music at The Bangalow Music Festival.
We empty out our coffee space and set up 50 chairs, leaving a wee space in front where world class musicians come to play and be interviewed in our intimate setting. Aren’t we spoilt! It really is very special. Rebecca is particularly chuffed to hand over her office and verandah as the ‘green room’ for the odd symphony principal violinist perhaps with Stradivarius violin; or cello, french horn master or clarinetist extraodinaire to practice before they delight our audience with snippets of fine music and a personal interview. We are wowed!
The Southern Cross Soloists are hosts, with Creative Director Tania Frazer somehow managing each year to convince world class musicians from around the world to spend a weekend performing at our coffee plantation’s coffee space and then all weekend at our local Bangalow village A& I Hall. Throughout the Bangalow Music Festival the musicians delight us all – mingling most friendly with locals and our further afield in the know patrons and sponsors. Hope you’ll join us next August!
