Sweet music a treat for lunch times

The ever-popular Friday Lunch Hour Concert Series returns to the University of Adelaide in August.

The second series for 2007 starts on Friday 3 August with a very special concert of chamber music. Led by Terence Tam, Concertmaster of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, the program features the beautiful Horn Quintet K407 by Mozart and a new work by Philip Hall which was composed especially to complement the quintet.

Once again, the Lunch Hour Concerts feature a diverse range of music performed by staff and students from the University of Adelaide's Elder Conservatorium of Music, and a range of exciting new artists.

The Benaud Trio, named after the famous Australian cricketer, has established a fine reputation and will perform the magnificent Piano Trio No.1 by Brahms in September. The TinAlley String Quartet will also visit from Melbourne later in the same month.

Marija Bajalica, a Yugoslav-born pianist now resident in Adelaide, will give her first solo recital for the concert series in early November, and organist Christopher Wrench will visit from Brisbane to perform on Elder Hall's stunning Casavant Frères organ.

The concerts will be held every Friday from 3 August until 16 November in Elder Hall from 1.10-2.00pm. Admission is only $6 and tickets are available at the door from 12.30pm on the day of each concert.

If you want to reserve a seat, a Gold Pass is also available for just $75. For more information contact the Concert Office on (08) 8303 5925.
