The Galston Concerts will offer an I. T. High Tea while waiting on further health advice to allow future concerts in the 2020 concert series.

A new project to help fill the void of postponed concerts, the I. T. High Tea will offer the Galston audience the chance to enjoy their own at-home afternoon tea shared with music ‘beamed’ from the church.

Meanwhile the Galston audience are enjoying monthly e-bulletins which include links to on-line performances by musicians from the series and other music news.

These included a late-May cameo video from Jack Theakston, Galston’s Young Musician of the Year for 2020.

Jack is a full scholarship cello student in the Rising Stars program at the Sydney Conservatorium. He is also multi-skilled as both pianist and organist, a frequent visitor to Galston Uniting’s historic pipe organ.

The concerts team hope to decide mid-June whether the next performance in Galston Uniting Church can proceed as scheduled on Sunday 26 July.

If circumstances allow there are hopes that concerts postponed from earlier in the year can be re-scheduled once-a-month later in the year.

Those wanting to join the concerts database to enjoy these on-line interim musical pleasures should contact Robert ‘High Tea’ Harris and Dorit Herskovits, co-directors of the series, on 0428 248 348.
