Kangaroo Island's favourite and most reliable string duo, The Bowerbird Collective, returns to perform "A Sunday Soirée" at 11am on Sunday, September 20 at the American River Hall.

The duo consists of Simone Slattery on violin and Anthony Albrecht on cello.

Their past performances, 'Bach to the Bush' and 'Where Song Began', are beloved musical memories for many Islanders.

Simone and Anthony, graduates of The Australian National Academy of Music and The Juilliard School, have performed throughout Australia and across the world, including four fundraising concerts in North America following the bushfires in January this year.

All proceeds were donated to BirdLife Australia's recovery campaign.

'A Sunday Soirée' will be a morning of light, celebratory music, complementing a welcome resumption of cultural gatherings on the island.
