Noosa’s new premium musical experience

Coastal Cadenzas has already established itself as Noosa's most premium musical experience.

New chamber music concert series Coastal Cadenzas has already established itself as Noosa’s most premium musical experience.

Locals snapped up tickets for the inaugural performance Tres Magnifique, where violinist and former QSO leader Warwick Adeney dazzled his audience with virtuosity and passion.

Excitement is building for the next event featuring Judit Molnar, an A-list soprano who trained in Hungary and now calls Queensland home.

Molnar is a versatile musician with an international portfolio career performing operas, oratorios, and solo works with numerous elite ensembles. On a smaller scale, she is often on stage singing baroque works with the Arioso Chamber Ensemble.

Upcoming concert The Dawn Dressed in White will treat audiences to a light afternoon of popular classics for clarinet and soprano – a most agreeable pairing, as the purity of the clarinet almost sounds like singing.

Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock and Spohr’s Six German Lieder are the big numbers, contrasted by a pleasant selection of popular favourites by Mozart, Bizet, Leoncavallo, Puccini, Vaughan-Williams and some novel arrangements prepared especially for this concert.

On keys once again is the legendary Janet Brewer, who has tirelessly supported Sunshine Coast music for decades.

Coastal Cadenzas aims to be an enduring cultural institution like no other in the region, thanks to the unique experience of artistic director Sacha Gibbs-McPhee. While studying at the famous Royal Academy of Music in London, Sacha was immersed in the music of his tradition and gained a mastery of clarinet technique. He is quickly gaining prestige as one of Australia’s leading chamber musicians, and has ambitions to bring world class performers together to entertain his beloved local community in Noosa, his home town since childhood.

Tickets can be purchased online at and at the door. Show starts 3pm on 23 June at Good Shepherd Church, Noosaville and 3pm on 7 July at the CCSA Hall, Caloundra.
