2017 Glebe Music Festival
The Glebe Music Festival in Sydney, Australia, grew out of the many informal musical soirées held at the early 19th century building Margaretta Cottage since the late 1960s.
The late Dr. Vincent Sheppard built up a unique collection of keyboard instruments including an 18th century Dutch chamber organ, a 19th century Kapps grand piano, a Sperrhake harpsichord, a pedal piano and a clavichord.
A copy of a Rucker's Flemmish double harpsichord, an original Clementi fortepiano dating from 1809 and an Erard Bi-Cord grand piano dating from 1859 have been added to the collection.
The underlying philosophy of the Glebe Music Festival is to bring together musicians at different stages of their careers in the intimate atmosphere of Margaretta Cottage. With large choirs this has expanded to the performance of major choral works at St Scholastica's Chapel in Glebe.
Other venues are used including Gleebooks, St John's Bishopthorpe, the Great Hall at the University of Sydney and the Old Court House. Another principle is to juxtapose local and international musicians.
