The Galston Concerts 2018 Series

hero
Five concerts in the Galston Uniting Church presenting outstanding international and Australian performers - fine music and fun music!

PLUS - a special Concert for Young Performers making it a total of six concerts in 2018.
25 February:  A Palm Court Musicale.  The New England Ensemble will play the passionate Dvorak Piano Quartet in a European odyssey of music for strings and piano from Britain to Russia, Scandinavia to Spain - Mozart, Beethoven, Turina and more.  Formed in London in 1974 by young Australians, NEE returned to create a golden age of music-making in regional centres as part of national and international success in thirty-plus European, North American and Asian countries.
8 April:  Young Performers.  Following our Series curtain raiser in February we offer a special bonus concert featuring prize-winning Young Performers - organist, cellist and saxophonist, plus likely other 'colours' new to our concerts - music of the great JS Bach and Telemann from the Baroque, some Australiana contrasts and a few surprises.  This is a free concert to subscription series ticket holders and those choosing to subscribe to the four concerts remaining through the year.
3 June:  A Man and a Baby Grand - Encore!  International pianist Bernard Walz, of Good Old Days Concerts fame, makes a welcome return to our series after his dazzling A Man and a Baby Grand recital in 2017.  In 2018 his virtuoso pianism presents an all-new program of great music which just happens to be familiar and popular, including themes from beloved movies, classical contrasts and American songbook favourites with a Young Performer guest vocalist.
29 July:  Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows.  Now in its 17th year, directed by SSO Principal Viola Roger Benedict, the Fellowship program has mentored the creative artistry of a new generation of exceptional young musicians, now seeing alumni in concert halls around the world including eleven past Fellows in permanent positions with the SSO - strings, winds, brass and percussion ensembles.
16 September:  Pictures at an Exhibition.  Recently returned from concerts in Scandinavia and a CD launch by her Copenhagen Piano Duo, Hornsby resident ABC recording artist Tonya Lemoh performs a piano recital in the grand tradition:  Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, a Rhopsody by Brahms, Mussorgsky's great Pictures at an Exhibition with its Great Gate of Kiev climax, plus exotica in Tan Dun's Moon, Song & Sunrain from Watercolour Memories.
18 November:  The Galston Gala - a B-hive!  Solos from the historic Fosters & Andrews organ and the debut of Arcadian Strings, the Hills and Hornsby's professional ensemble, formed by our co-founders Robert Harris and Dorit Herskovits, both past Principals of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.  A swarm of Bs - Bach, Baroque, (Leonard) Bernstein, music of Biedermeier Vienna by the Strauss family and winners from our Bach competition. 
Between Sunday 25 February 2018 and Sunday 18 November 2018
2pm - 4pm (followed by complimentary afternoon tea)
