Mornings with the ASQ @ UKARIA – South Australia

Friday 17 May, 11am
Devonshire Tea from 10am
UKARIA Cultural Centre, Mt Barker SA

Presented in association with UKARIA Cultural Centre

Drive through the glorious Adelaide Hills, following the fresh scent of eucalyptus and pine. You’ll meander up a dirt road and watch the bush blend into vineyards before entering the natural gallery of UKARIA Cultural Centre’s front garden.

Treat yourself to a delightful Devonshire Tea, with oven-warm scones as fresh as the day. Then, stroll into UKARIA’s concert hall for a morning of exquisite quartet music set against a live montage of the maturing day before your eyes.


Sublime musicianship and a drive to create utterly exquisite chamber music fuelled Brahms at the time he created his first String Quartet. The result is a beautiful work of over ten years in the making. Australian artist Kate Moore has forged a career working with some of the hottest contemporary music ensembles. Her art arises from a fascination with the natural world, which she celebrates in this new ASQ commission.
