TYALGUM Festival Committee and Friends of the Tweed River Art Gallery will host the 2012 Gallery Series this Sunday.

The audience is told to expect "chamber music at its finest" with solo renditions by Melbourne-based musicians Anna McMichael and Daniel de Borah.

The program will be offering a range of classical pieces which include Biber's Passacaglia, Schumann's fiery and ultra-romantic Novellettes for piano, Brahms' Sonata No. 2 and much more.   

Coordinator for the 2012 Gallery Series, Alexsandra Wilkinson, said the event has been running for 3 years and has received vital funding with the Tweed Council.

"[The Tweed Gallery Series] began in a one-off concert back in 2009 with the New Holland Trio, and was founded by Margot Anthony, the Patron of the Tweed River Art Gallery," Ms Wilkinson said.

"The Tweed Council has been extremely supportive in regards to funding, as they provided seed funding for the concert - a very generous act."

Mrs  Anthony said support for the Tyalgum Festival of Classical Music has grown over the years since its inception in 1988.

"We have seen Indian-inspired music, pieces on the didgeridoo, classical performances, it's been fantastic to be a part of this [festival]," she said.

"This Sunday will see the commencement of the second installment for the 2012 Gallery Series."

The concert will operate in conjunction with a personal 'masterclass' at Sathya Sai Primary School on Saturday, and is open to the public via gold-coin donation.

In this class, four students will have the opportunity to gain an insight into the world of classical performance by receiving a lesson by two professional musicians.

The students will each perform music they have prepared, and the guest musicians will give advice on how to play it.

Tickets for the 2012 Gallery Series are available at Anderson's Treasure Store Main St Murwillumbah, and at the door at 5.30pm unless sold out.
