Feast of fine music at lunchtime
Lunchtimes at ELDERHALL returns on 30 July with one of Beethoven's most successful and popular works, Septet for Winds and Strings.
The seven-member Ensemble le Monde - made up of musicians from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra - opens the second semester of lunchtime concerts.
"This season promises a range of international guest artists as well as distinguished alumni making their mark in the world of music," said Elder Hall Manager Claire Oremland.
Performances by successful Elder Conservatorium graduates this semester include:
- Sally Dean, principal oboist with the London Metropolitan Orchestra in Portugal;
- Pianist Michael Ierace, visiting from London;
- Luke Dollman, special guest conductor for the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra's Performance of Beethoven's 5th Symphony;
- Alexander Tsiboulski, Australia's latest guitar sensation, who will be joined by Jacob Cordover for a stunning duo concert.
The Dutch-based early music ensemble, Satyrs Band, promise something special for their October concert when they perform music from the 16th and 17th Century, using original instruments such as the shawm and dulcian.
Other highlights include the renowned Australian String Quartet performing Schubert and the return of the Adelaide Chamber Players in November, directed by ASO Concertmaster Natsuko Yoshimoto, performing Mendelssohn's Octet.
Jazz, choral, vocal and chamber music concerts will all be featured throughout the second season, which finishes on 12 November with the Beta Sigma Phi Awards concert, when Elder Conservatorium graduates vie for $2400 in prizes.
