Lake Hayes Queenstown
…..a gripping combination of classical music, murder & great literature
Featuring a dramatic retelling of ​Tolstoy’s​ ​The Kreutzer Sonata​, and a spine chilling performances of music by Janáček, Schubert & Haydn this is a rare combination of words and music in the superb acoustics of the Thomas Brown Gallery.
Describing a crime of passion, The Kreutzer Sonata​ was instantly banned ​in both Russia & the USA, and Tolstoy branded a sexual moral pervert by President Theodore Roosevelt.
Words Are Weapons is a concert created by the Sydney Art Quartet, a dynamic group of Australian musicians known for their electrifying and refreshing performances that embrace multiple arts forms and senses.
Words Are Weapons was previously staged in Australia in sell-out concerts with David Wenham (Lion, Seachange, 300​ and Pirates of the Caribbean) and in Queenstown will feature a soon to be announced distinguished actor. With only one concert announced, tickets will be highly held!

The 17 and 18 of May 2019 marked the start of Turn Up the Music’s external engagement programme.

On 17 May a string quartet featuring Benjamin Baker, Justine Cormack, Gillian Ansell and Alexander Hersh performed compositions by Franz Schubert and Gareth Farr at Arrowtown, Shotover, and Queenstown Primary schools. Garth Farr was in attendance too, and spoke about his Mondo Rondo composition.

The following night, the string quartet performed at the launch of the Trust, at Hakitekura, Queenstown.  The set also included a composition by Felix Mendelssohn, followed by a Tchaikovsky encore.

Benjamin Baker took the opportunity to announce the launch of Chamber Music at the World’s Edge.  The aim is to bring chamber music events to the people of Central Otago on a regular and planned basis.

One of the highlights of the launch was a performance by precocious saxophonist Eliott Allemand, a graduate of the Lakes Community Music School.  Eliott showcased the potential of Turn Up the Music’s programme and its music school.
