Experience extraordinary music in unique spaces

Music-lovers are invited to a day of free pop-up concerts in Adelaide’s iconic cultural institutions on North Terrace on Sunday, 14 November 2021.

Celebrating Adelaide’s status as a UNESCO City of Music, On the Terrace is a welcoming and accessible mini-festival featuring performances by more than 40 high-calibre musicians, including Adelaide’s experienced chamber musicians, rising stars and special guests.

On the Terrace is presented by Chamber Music Adelaide in partnership with the State Library South Australia; Migration Museum; Art Gallery of South Australia and SA Museum. Audiences discover a rich variety of performances amongst exhibitions and artefacts, inspiring a deeper engagement between music, artworks, history and place.

Special highlights on the day will include:

– A collaboration between Soundstream’s Gabriella Smart, Barkindji Song Woman Nancy Bates and the Inarma Women’s Choir, performing in conjunction with the Tarnanthi Festival at Art Gallery of South Australia.

– A dedicated Emerging Artist Showcase stage at the State Library of SA’s Circulating Library will provide a platform for local early career musicians;

– The SA Museum will showcase two of their STEAM Incubator projects with CMA ensembles: Kegelstatt Ensemble’s Perspectives Trilogy and Various People Inc’s Lifelines featuring new compositions exploring themes of the Australian polar expeditions

On The Terrace is an award-winning free event that is designed to be enjoyed by music-lovers, culture-seekers and families of all ages, particularly those who may not already be familiar with chamber music. Performances are short (around 15 minutes each) and presented in a relaxed and enticing environment, allowing audiences to sample a wide range of musical styles.
