The award-winning Partridge String Quartet collaborate to present a Sunday afternoon concert that explores the works of Australian composers and their connection with the next generation of musicians and composers. The members of this ensemble, all graduates of the Australian Youth Orchestra programs, are known for their dynamic performances of a wide range of repertoire. Inspired by wind, dances and flight, the collection of colourful works in this concert will provide insight into the intricacies of classical chamber music, whilst celebrating the importance of mentorship and shared experience through music.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
