Ar­ca­dia Mu­si­cal Recitals

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Mar­garet McKin­ley and Michael Bell are ready for the 2016 se­ries to be­gin on the 29th May, when the Aus­tralian Haydn En­sem­ble will per­form in the chapel of St Bene­dicts Monastery. Four more recitals will fol­low in com­ing months, how­ever the two are giv­ing se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion to mak­ing this year’s se­ries, at least in its present form, the last.

The first con­certs were given in 2002 and in the in­ter­ven­ing years the pa­trons, from far and wide, have heard some won­der­ful mu­sic per­formed by in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned artists. School chil­dren from Ar­ca­dia and Berowra have en­joyed the gen­eros­ity of sub­scribers do­nat­ing sur­plus tick­ets while those who have be­come un­able to travel too far have been able to con­tinue to fol­low their pas­sion.

Mar­garet and Michael en­joy their in­volve­ment but think that it may be time to at least re­duce the num­ber of con­certs to a less de­mand­ing sched­ule. This year’s book­ings are lower than in the past, so this may also be an in­di­ca­tion that the time is right for a change.

There are still tick­ets avail­able for the se­ries and for in­di­vid­ual con­certs. A copy of the newslet­ter may be ob­tained and book­ings made, by con­tact­ing Mar­garet on 96533501 or Michael on 96531365.
