Treat Your Mum To A Delectable Day Of Cakes And Corelli’s Music At Holmes à Court Gallery This Mother’s Day

By Secret Perth

Join Australian Baroque in celebrating Mother’s Day with cake and music.

Australian Baroque takes the beautiful music of the Baroque period out of the concert halls and into galleries, schools, museums and breweries to bring the classic musical scores to the people. This Mother’s Day will be no different, except this time there’s cake! (Featured image: supplied)

Cakes and Corelli

Australian Baroque, the national ensemble formed primarily by WA-based artists, is taking to Holmes à Court Gallery an exquisite selection of cakes and a selection of 17th and 18th classic musical scores to delight and spoil your mum this Mother’s Day.

On May 9, the chamber works by Handel, Telemann and Corelli will fill the gallery space as tasting plates of cakes from Holly Raye’s Café do the rounds for this unqiue gastromusicology experience. Mum’s will be able to load up on cake to their heart’s content as they wander the gallery to the sounds of centuries past.

There will be three performances over the course of the day at Holmes à Court Gallery in West Perth where the current exhibition on display, Intimacy, reminds us of the importance and value of others, of caring and of celebrating our relationships at a time when distance has crept between us.

Show and tell mum you love her this Mother’s Day with cake, music and art.

Tickets available here.

More Performances by Australian Baroque

Australian Baroque aims to take the beautiful music of the baroque period out of the concert halls and into galleries, schools, museums, breweries and anywhere else where they can reach a wider public. It has also forced them to come up with innovative, unique and incredible events to showcase the amazing music they play and entertain audiences—one of them might even get you drunk.

Space Music – Harmony of the Spheres

Over the course of an hour, Space Music will take guests on a multi-sensory journey through the stars.

Join NASA astrophysicist and planetary geologist Dr Antony Brian on an adventure that stems from the 1600s when the late Renaissance period clashed with the early Baroque and acted as a creative catalyst among both musicians and astronomers.

Although attendance does not guarantee an understanding of the third law of planetary motion, you will leave with a renewed appreciation for universal music.

When: 29 and 30 April


Bach and Beer

Having launched last year at Fringe World 2020 to great success, Bach and Beer will continue in 2021 at Bright Tanks Brewing Co. where attendees will be treated to four specially crafted beers while Australian Baroque masterfully highlights Bach’s mixed national styles that elevated him above his peers.

This is one concert that you do not want to miss.

When: 13 May, 20 May, 27 May and more
