The Galston Concerts are back with a ‘third time lucky’ next concert scheduled for Sunday 29 May in Galston Uniting Church. Three’s Company trio will perform a ‘patience pays off’ program of popular Classics for soprano, clarinet and piano.
Their ‘back by public demand’ return engagement for their Galston fans was twice postponed, in 2020 and 2021, due to COVID restrictions, so Galston is very happy to be bringing their live music back to our stage.
Three’s Company’s program will feature the top of the Classical Pops Shepherd on the Rocks by Franz Schubert, music by Mozart and a range of contrasts including Polish folk dances and cabaret songs – a broad appeal offering favourites and discoveries.
International performers all, Soprano Narelle Yeo will visit The Hills to join local stars, clarinetist Deborah de Graaff of Berowra and pianist Tonya Lemoh of Normanhurst, all keen to recommence their concerts overseas, so long on hold.
The 29 May 2pm start will be preceded by Galston’s customary organ prelude from 1.30pm. Continuing the local talent theme will be Kenthurst resident Jack Theakston, not only performing Galston Uniting’s historic organ but also hosting other prize-winner young organists.
The young talent theme was a feature of Galston’s 27 March curtain-raiser concert for 2022 when award-winners from national competitions and Sydney Conservatorium’s Rising Stars project dazzled the audience with their skills.
Bookings for 29 May are recommended to guarantee best seats but door sales on the day are also an option – though best to phone 9653 2039 or 0428 248 348 to check on availability.
