Coramba is a small village servicing around 800 people in the Orara Valley tucked into the hinterland 15 minutes north west of Coffs Harbour. The centre of local life for over a century has been the Coramba Hall. This former School of Arts was built in 1914 on land donated by William Gale and built by George Dahl of ‘Attunga’. It quickly became the social centre of the town, hosting balls, dances, plays, concerts, benefit nights and Coramba’s own band. It is claimed Dame Nellie Melba sang here once, along with Dame Clara Butt and Ada Crossly at other times. A more recent celebrity visitor was Slim Dusty. It was also used as a cinema and still retains its projection room.

And now it is once more to come alive with classical music. The newly formed Music in the Regions NSW State agency has been working with Arts Mid North Coast to develop more touring of classical music in the region. On 14 May at 2pm the Coramba Hall at 4 Dorrigo Street Coramba will host, Suite Magica, a concert by classical guitarist  Andrew Blanch and harpist Emily Granger. Book tickets here
