Elysian Fields

Saturday June 18, 7pm @ The Cube Wodonga

Elysian Fields. Elysian Fields was formed by Jenny Eriksson, Matt Keegan, and Matt McMahon in 2015. The band is an ongoing experiment in creating new improvised and composed repertoire for the electric viola da gamba – of which Eriksson is believed to be the only Australian exponent.

Our Mission

Murray River Fine Music aims to make the live performance of top-level Classical music accessible to regional country communities. We are open to incorporating artists who perform in contemporary and or jazz styles, as well as Classical.

Our goal is to provide a quality experience for regional audiences that would normally only be the privilege of city dwellers.

Help Us Grow - Donate Now

Murray River Fine Music has already attracted assistance to present the first concert of its 2021 program, but additional resources are required to mount the full 2021 program, including public performances by Inventi Ensemble, Ensemble Liaison and Elysian Fields, music scholarships, workshops and masterclasses for students.

The project will bring internationally renowned music artists to the Albury Wodonga region. The project will provide skill development opportunities to students in the region not otherwise available.

Donations will be used to pay professional artists their performance and tuition fees and expenses, hire venues, promotion, fund scholarships and administrative costs incurred in presenting and managing the program.

Our Curatorial Philosophy

We engage the best performers and allow them the freedom to present programs that they are comfortable with, and can deliver with passion and enthusiasm.  We also aim to continue the security of a new and vibrant Classical music scene in Australia, through our programming, providing student opportunities and delivering new work commissions.

Apart from promoting and engaging the best performers and musicians, we also strive to include interactive educational opportunities for up and coming local musicians through masterclasses and workshops hosted by the featured performers.

Our hope is to feature at least one world premiere by an Australian composer each year.

Program during COVID-19

Our primary aim is to foster the return of live performance to maintain the intimate experience that chamber music is renowned for.

We have adjusted our approach based on the current uncertainty, and we aim to have stand alone concerts with limited tickets available.
