Longing to spend your lunch hour device-free and served with a slice of serenity?

Drop in for City Recital Hall’s long running series of lunchtime concerts, A Little Lunch Music. Each concert is an hour of musical escapism performed by some of Australia’s best artists. Take your pick from one (or all!) of 12 events in 2019, and return to the rest of your day feeling uplifted and inspired.

The Orava Quartet has been hailed by Limelight Magazine and The Australian as “the most exciting young quartet on the block”, “world class”, and “the real deal”. They have earned a reputation and a devoted following for their passionate and thrilling performances. For this concert they will bring their unique sound and breathtaking intensity to the classics of the string quartet canon along with acclaimed pianist Kathryn Selby.

Feel free to bring your lunch into the auditorium. Our Lobby Bar is stocked with a range of light meal options or you can BYO.
