Mornings with the ASQ @ UKARIA – South Australia

Friday 22 February, 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.


Helena Winkelman’s Papa Haydn’s Parrot is an idiosyncratic tribute to Haydn and the birds that inspired him. It draws upon her deep knowledge of the classical heritage to reinvent the past for a modern context. In a tremendous assertion of personal strength, Jean Sibelius’ Voces intimae delves deep into his emotional life, laying him bare for the audience to witness.
