Mecca Coffee and Live at Yours are serving up sublime nights of music every month with Live at Mecca. The music series brings together guests and performers in a relaxed and easy-going space, away from the stuffy confines of classical music halls, where food and drink can be shared as music fills the room.
The concert series at Mecca Coffee, with its exposed brick walls and industrial feel, brings out another side to the performances that you wouldn’t get to experience in a theatre or proper live music venue. It’s homely, chic and there’s a personal feel to the evening.
With a number of performances from opera to classical to flamenco all scheduled to go ahead, take a look below and grab your tickets now for a Sunday evening performance of live music in an intimate city café. You might even get to meet the performers.
Chroma Quartet has emerged from lockdown as one of Sydney’s top quartets thanks to the inclusive and intimate atmospheres created at their concerts. Though youthful, their talent is undeniable and has seen them snapped up by orchestras here in Australia noticed by those abroad.
They will play two groundbreaking works—Ligeti’s quartet no.1 and Beethoven’s epic op.131—in succession for Live at Mecca where parts of each musical score will melt into the next changing their nature—a metamorphosis of sorts—that will enchant, charm and captivate the audience.
Artists: Chroma Quartet (Harry Bennetts, Victoria Bihun, Elizabeth Woolnough, and Eliza Sdraulig)
When: Sunday 5 June, 6pm
Mecca Coffee will be transformed into a tablao when Australia’s distinguished contemporary Flamenco ensemble Bandaluzia arrives.
ARIA-nominated Flamenco guitarist Damian Wright will be joined by Rosalie Cocchiaro, who has performed in traditional tablaos in Spain for ten years, and award-winning dancer Jessica Statham for a Flamenco showcase incorporating elements of jazz, the Orient and South American sounds as well. Get ready for a journey of passion.
Artists: Bandaluzia (Damian Wright, Ben Hauptmann, James Hauptmann, Jessica Statham and Rosalie Cocchiaro)
When: Sunday 5 June, 6pm
