Planning for a new event is underway!

The Anlaby Quadrangle Series, Co-Opera & Gilbert and Sullivan Society of S.A. were proud to present Gilbert & Sullivan’s
at Anlaby on Saturday the 5th March 2016.
The first of the Quadrangle Series in 2008, Enchant Your Senses, was a black tie affair – Maggie Beer enchanted everyone with lamb pie, followed by chocolate and quince paste tarts. Our aural senses were charmed by Tutti, a choir for people with physical and mental disability in the Barossa and Clare Valleys. The senses were taken to even higher heights by the sublime performance of tenor, Jonathon Welch, of Choir of Hard Knock fame.
The second Quadrangle Series was a High Tea with a wonderful performance by the talented women of the Australian String Quartet. On a very warm Sunday November guests sipped champagne on the front terrace overlooking the fountain and enjoyed sandwiches, and a variety of cakes wandering the garden. The ASQ delighted everyone with their stunning performances of pieces by Nigel Westlake, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. The ASQ performance was sponsored by Jim & Helen Carreker and John & Jan Angas.
Our most important and appreciated sponsor and supporter for all of the Quadrangle Series is Yalumba Wines and Robert Hill Smith who selected wonderful wines specifically matched to the individual occasion.
Sunday 26th September 2010 Quadrangle Series – An Edwardian Afternoon at Anlaby with Joanna Cole.
Joanna has selected repertoire reflective of the elegant (and slightly naughty) Edwardian era and well was popular Soprano arias for the Anlaby concert. The performance will take place in the Clydesdale Pavilion at Anlaby, one of South Australia’s historically significant heritage-listed homes.
High Tea served on the front terrace of the Anlaby homestead prior to the concert and at interval. This is one of the few occasions each year for guests to join the resident owners of Anlaby and enjoy the grounds and terraces of this historic and graciously beautiful property.
There was a great report on the 2010 concert at Barossa.com (the report is no longer available)
