HOW MANY STARS CAN YOU SEE IN THE FOREST?
The Bundaleer Forest Weekend returns in 2011 for two days and two nights of music, opera and theatre in a unique bushland setting only two hours from Adelaide.
Attracting thousands of music lovers, the Bundaleer Forest Weekend is located near Jamestown, two hours north of Adelaide and is held against the stunning backdrop of century-old oak and elm trees.
Headlining the 2011 program are musical stars David Hobson, James Morrison, Silvie Paladino and Andy Firth.
Australian tenor and composer David Hobson is one of Australia’s best known operatic performers with a long list of credits to his name and a favourite with local audiences through his television roles, in “It Takes Two” and “Dancing With The Stars”.
James Morrison has been Australia’s best known jazz performer for the past decade, playing a raft of instruments including the euphonium, flugel horn, tuba and piano.
When he’s not writing film scores, composing or being patron of several youth orchestras, James is competing in triathlons, abseiling, flying his private plane or driving in rally championships.
Having received rave reviews for her one-woman show “Silvie Paladino Sings Streisand”, Silvie Paladino has gone on to perform throughout Australia, Asia and London’s West End. She is familiar to many thanks to her regular appearances on Carols By Candlelight.
Andy Firth is regarded as one of the finest clarinet players in the world and his breathtaking performances at the last Bundaleer Festival earned him a return call. Ironically, this Port Augusta-born artist rarely has the opportunity to perform in his home state because of his busy international diary.
In addition to these highly regarded artists, Australia’s oldest plantation forest will also play host to Tim Sexton and the Adelaide Art Orchestra and many others.
The family-friendly festival takes place from April 8 to 10, 2011, with camping available on site.
