GALSTON CONCERTS: Greetings and Gifts!

“Seasons Greetings” from The Galston Concerts to all Hills and Hornsby music lovers.

Christmas, a time of sharing, sees the concerts team polishing up a five-star sequence of Sunday afternoon concerts in Galston Uniting Church in 2022.

Your Happy New Year celebrations (hopefully a happier year ahead than ‘20 and ‘21) can linger longer because the concerts in Galston are a gift which lasts all year.

27 March will find the Bartholdy Piano Trio and Piccolo String Quartet performing as winners of The Galston Concerts Awards in Musica Viva Australia’s Strike A Chord 2021 National Championships for high school students.

This brilliant next-generation talent just happens to include Piccolo’s cellist, Kenthurst’s Hills Grammar multi-musician Jack Theakston.

29 May will see Three’s Company return to fulfil their COVIDpostponed concert from July 2021: Berowra-resident clarinetist Deborah de Graaff, Normanhurst’s international pianist Tonya Lemoh plus soprano Narelle Yeo.

24 July offers Sydney Symphony Principal Harp alumna Louise Johnson with her World of Harps program – Celtic, Jazz and Latin American styles.

18 September will showcase prize winners from the ANZ Viola Power competition – a special project of our concerts Co-Directors, Galston-resident violist Robert Harris and his double bassist wife Dorit Herskovits.

20 November also shapes up as something special – new sounds for The Galston Concerts with the NSW Police Big Band and vocalist Belinda Parsons.

Rob and Dorit treasure their musical memories of Christmas past, playing in orchestras at the Sydney Opera House for Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet, Handel’s Messiah, Carols for Christmas and the spectacular New Year’s Eve Concerts. They look forward to sharing musical pleasures with you, closer to home in Galston, through a very happy new year ahead.
