Germany meets Echuca Moama

By Alex Gretgrix

ECHUCA-MOAMA will welcome a little bit of European flare to the border region when the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne comes to the twin towns in February.

On February 6, the Echuca-Moama Uniting Church will host one of Germany's finest ensembles which will bring classical music to life.

This merry band of musicians features Sergey Didorenko on violin, Karen Ruprecht on bassoon and Christoph Jahn on violoncello.

The group's motto is ‘classical music the world over’ and their objective is simple - inspire people of all generations to enjoy the genre of music.

With its ever changing and expanding repertoire of hand-picked songs, the ensemble strives to give their audiences a range of popular and lesser known pieces.

This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi and even works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the “King of Tango”a Astor Piazzolla.

Off the back of successful tours of Europe, the group is returning and touring Australia this summer.

So head on down to the Echuca-Moama Uniting Church from 8pm on Thursday, February 6 to see these great performers in action.

Tickets are available to be purchased online at or at the door on the night.

Entry is $40 for adults, $30 for children, $35 for concession and $30 for students.
