The Galston Concert for Sunday 24 May in Galston Uniting Church has been postponed because of ongoing public health advice.

The “Cellissimo” program for cellos, piano and organ will be re-scheduled for a date later this year or in the 2021 Galston series.

Meanwhile the concerts team has created new ways to link to the Galston audience.

A March e-bulletin sent to the concerts database included links to on-line performances of music from the series curtain-raiser postponed from 22 March.

“Feedback suggests the music links have been a big help” says concerts spokesperson Rob Harris.

“Not the social buzz of the live concerts and afternoon teas but a great way to relax – and a value-added help to household chores – seem to be the verdicts.”

The April e-bulletin will link to themes of Easter, Autumn and ANZAC Day and likely cameo videos from musicians of the series as a way of keeping in touch until live concerts return.

“We’ve also confirmed the very talented Kenthurst resident Jack Theakston as The Galston Concerts Young Musician of the Year 2020”.

“In addition to Jack’s local links as a student at Hills Grammar and the Hills Shire Symphony Orchestra he is already achieving on other stages.”

“A member of the Sydney Conservatorium’s Rising Stars program on Saturdays Jack was also selected to be a member of the 2020 Australian Youth Orchestra“.

“Jack will join our line-up of on-line performers in coming months”.
