The Galston Concerts start their 2020 series Sunday afternoon 22 March with a 250th birthday feast of ‘Classical & Contrasts’ sounds and styles.

Three’s Company – Narelle Yeo, soprano; Deborah de Graaff, clarinet; Tonya Lemoh, piano – will perform a Viennese firsthalf line-up of music by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock – a ‘top ten’ Classical song setting.

These greats of Classical style date from the time of Australia’s First Fleet and Governor Macquarie, with our ‘year of Captain Cook’, 1770, also being the year of Beethoven’s birth – 250 years ago.

A second half of contrasts will explore music from England and Spain, Polish dances and cabaret songs.

The Ferry Artists Gallery is pleased to announce our first show of 2020. “cArte Blanche” is an opened themed exhibition to allow our artists to follow their own inspiration. It opens from 21st February and will run through to Easter. Enjoy a drive down to Wisemans Ferry and experience the talents of our local artists and artisans. Three’s Company international performances in Europe and North America are now matched by their academic successes: soon to be a trio of ‘Doctors in the House’.

Galston Concerts founderdirectors Robert Harris, viola and Dorit Herskovits, double bass will add strings ‘colour’ in cameo performances with the trio. The concert will start 2pm in Galston Uniting Church.

A further bonus of a preconcert organ prelude, starting c. 1.30pm, will feature Emily Thompson, top prizewinner of the 2019 Organ Music Society of Sydney competitions, as part of The Galston Concerts young performers project.

Post-concert complimentary afternoon teas allow for an added mix-and-mingle chance to meet the performers.
