Every year you have a great chance to visit an amazing classical music concert in New South Wales. It is held in the Cathedral Chamber of the magnificent Jenolan Caves. Such a concert can be visited every third and last Saturday of each month.
The third Saturday is reserved for George Mertens who plays the cello. He is giving these concerts for ten years and has learned to play the most suitable things for the acoustics of the chamber.
The final Saturdays are again for Mertens, but this time he plays the guitar and his partner is Gustaw Szelski who plays the violin. Together they form the great Paganini Duo and they play different lively tunes from Hungary, Romania, Russia and Spain.
As you might guess the Cathedral Chamber is an ideal place for concerts - it has pure acoustics advanced by the limestone formations. The concert and the tour of the Lucas Caves last about two hours and you should not forget bringing warm clothes.
