This musical event takes inspiration from five “heroes”- from the recently opened Harris Farm Markets at West Village – pineapples, tomatoes, passionfruit, strawberries, and capsicums. West Village wrote, “These are from Harris Farm’s seasonal range of fruit and veg that might not look perfect from the outside but are as perfect and full of flavour as ever on the inside!”

This weekend, 3 July, the public was given a chance to see Camerata’s ensemble deliver a live rehearsal in The Common with their chosen fruit and vegetables for free. Camerata Artistic Director Brendan Joyce led the performance of 12 musicians on violin, viola, cello, and double bass from Camerata.

Camerata will also perform some well-known pieces, such as Peter Allen’s “When My Baby Goes to Rio” and some pieces from Astor Piazzolla, who was known for revolutionizing tango music in the 1950s by infusing Tango with jazz and classical.

A first for Camerata, the group is pleased to present Edible Encores, which is a musical response to fruit and vegetables. Mr Joyce said it has been delightful and surprising to see where this adventure has taken the ensemble.
