Free Sunday Afternoon Concert 17th November 2013

Posted by in Uncategorized | November 27, 2013

Our recent Sunday Afternoon Concert was a huge success with over 100 people attending. The beautiful Uniting Church provided the perfect acoustic for a program of stunning music. Local musician, Catherine Browning, soprano was accompanied on piano by Claire Lamb. Their program included Schubert, Schumann, Mozart, Bizet, Purcell, Dvorak and Haydn. Claire also presented two piano solos, Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and Clair du Lune by Debussy. The audience was on their feet demanding an encore from Catherine and Claire, which came with an exquisite rendition of Panis Angelicus by Cesar Franck. Support acts were provided by Imogen Mann on cello and Tomoko Spalding on piano. Imogen performed a Bach Prelude and a moving piece by Ernest Block titled “Prayer from Jewish Life”. (Imogen is a past student of South West Music and is about to sit her AMEB 8th Grade exam.) Tomoko played Beethoven’s Pathetique piano sonata and a Chopin Valse.

Perhaps Sunday Afternoon Concerts provided by some of our home grown talent will become a regular item on our calendar!!
