Evening of Classics

The Brisbane Golf Club will host an Evening of Classics with Champagne expert and Vin De Champagne Award winner, Bernadette O’Shea and award winning violinist, Annabelle Travers on Friday, 27 August 2021 in The Tennyson Room.

Bernadette has been saluted by France’s finest champagne makers. They pay tribute to her exceptional palate and profound champagne knowledge. She has been honoured in Australia since 1984 when she became the first non professional woman to win the coveted Vin de Champagne Award, an award she currently co-judges.

A full-time champagne consultant and educator, she lives in Brisbane, enjoys a huge personal following of former and perennial students, and travels professionally both in Australian and Champagne, France. Bernadette hold a French knighthood, Chevalier de l’order du Merite Agricole, for her contribution to the champagne industry as well as other French award.

Annabelle Traves, who performs on a 1784 Gagliano, is an award winning violinist who has studied around the world to perfect her art. Annabelle was named the youngest member of The Australian Youth Orchestra at just 14 years old where she was awarded a scholarship at the Sydney Conservatorium. In 2020 she won The Convocation Medal for leadership.

Since then, she has been Concertmaster for the University’s Symphony Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra and Ensemble Apex; performed with a host of international musicians from Diana Krall to Bruce Springsteen; and established the Katrina Dawson Foundation Concert to help the Foundation to create opportunities for exceptional young women. Traves recently accepted a master’s position for solo violin performance at the Hochschule fur Musik und Tanz Cologne, in Germany. Annabelle will perform online.
