Exhilarating: The Australian String Quartet will perform at The James Theatre on Sunday, June 13 for what promises to be a truly memorable concert.

Following the success of the Australian Chamber Orchestra's performance at The James Theatre, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) will take the stage on Sunday, June 13 at 4pm.

The ASQ are on a regional tour with the Sydney Dance Company and in between performances, have agreed to drop into Dungog for one performance - A True History of the Kelly Gang.

The beauty of quality string quartet music is the ability of the musicians to engage very personally with the audience: there's no conductor or large stage - just four musicians, their instruments and the audience, up close. The talent of the musicians is complemented by the instruments they play: two priceless violins, a viola and a cello made in Turin and Piacenza, Italy between 1743 and 1784 by Giovanni Guadagnini.

Bruce Cooper, the Deputy Chair of the ASQ said: "The ASQ is delighted to be able to cooperate with the Friends of the James to bring truly world class musicians and music to Dungog for this event that continues to put Dungog on the map for hosting things out-of-the-ordinary".
