“The Song of the Wombat” to have World Premiere at Benefit Concert for wildlife

A new work of Australian music, “The Song of the Wombat”, will have its world premiere at a concert at the Convent Gallery on Friday November 12 at 6pm. The piece for solo bassoon celebrates our most beloved local icon – the wombats of Wombat Forest – and will be part of a benefit concert for the Central Victoria Wildlife Hospital.

The program of the Benefit Concert will also feature the Zephyr String Ensemble, a group of young, professional musicians performing works from a range of composers, including Mozart, Hildegard of Bingen, a lovely quartet for bassoon and strings by Francois Devienne, some Martinu madrigals for violin and viola and a folk set or two.

Tickets are $25 and bookings can be made online at: For more information, call 0478 622428.
