The Galston Concerts in Galston Uniting Church continue to find musical gold in the Hills and Hornsby districts. While live face-to-face events are postponed the concerts team are sending virtual concerts to their socially distanced audience.
Robert Harris and Dorit Herskovits, globe-trotting musos and co-founders of the concerts, themselves Galstonresident, are discovering many musical talents who call northwest Sydney home.
“Our first on-line I. T. High Tea video featured clarinetist Deborah de Graaff, who lives in Berowra, with pianist Tonya Lemoh, who lives in Normanhurst. Their international studies and professional successes were reflected in their program of music from Germany, Sweden, Spain and Argentina.” “Our next on-line High Tea will showcase solo pianist Samuel Dharma, who directs his piano studio in Cherrybrook.”
“Sam’s overseas successes, which have had a USA focus, are also reflected in his program of music from Vienna, Paris and Indonesia.”
“And let’s not forget that our Young Musician for 2020-21, Jack Theakston, who lives with his family in Kenthurst, certainly has a potential for global musical travels. Jack will return in more cello, organ and piano videos later this year.”
The Galston audience receive monthly Newsletters with links to other online performances plus music news, including a decision in late August whether the next live concert in the series can proceed as advertised on 20 September.
