Bach in the Dark – A celebration of cello playing

It’s been a difficult year, and to finish the year, Rachel decided to celebrate with one of her oldest musical friends, her former teacher, David Pereira.

David is a ‘Bach in the Dark’ series regular (and audience favourite!), and the two cellists will be presenting a concert with all their favourite duos they’ve played over the near-decade they have been performing together. Get ready for some wonderful music-making in the amazing acoustics of the tunnel. The two friends will play music by Bach, Barrière, Bartók, Ross Edwards and David Pereira – and a few other delights!

The two friends were due to play in the wonderful acoustics of the Coal Loader Tunnel in July, but due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the concert couldn’t go ahead. So they’ve rescheduled…. Get ready for a night of musical celebrations.

In 2016, Rachel and David recorded a CD called ‘Dreaming with Daisy’. Want to hear the two friends playing together? Just go here

Just so you know….

The concert will begin at 7.00, but the tunnel will be open at 6.30pm.

There’s no public transport to this venue. The floors are uneven, and the tunnel is open at both ends (although the concert is in the middle of this very long tunnel), so you may need to dress warmly if you feel the cold, and be prepared to walk carefully. Sensible shoes are recommended! There are no toilet facilities in the tunnel – you’ll need to catch the lift up to where you enter the complex. There is also no disabled access.

By purchasing this ticket you agree to abide by all instructions given to you by Bach in the Dark or North Sydney Council staff. You understand that you are entering a former industrial site with non-level flooring, open guttering and possible water dripping.
