Sally Walker’s Twilight Musical Dialogues has been a raging success among classical fans”
— Newcastle Herald

Derived from the idea of a sonata being a “dialogue”, Twilight Musical Dialogues is a confiding dialogue in intimate proximity between the performers and audience, with four concept chamber concerts presented in Newcastle and one in regional NSW with internationally acclaimed artists alongside showcased talented local youth artists in a unique atmosphere of humour and pathos.

Passionate about bringing the world of music to Newcastle, Artistic Director Sally Walker engages Australia’s musical luminaries in a “Salon Niveau” with unique programming and commissions of new works. Engaging with regional industry, concerts are preceded by delectations from the Hunter Valley.
