The Gal­ston Con­cert

With the win­try sun shin­ing through the amaz­ing stain glass win­dow be­hind him at Gal­ston Unit­ing Church, Bernard Walz wowed an au­di­ence of over 200 on 3 June. Per­former, con­duc­tor, com­poser, or­ches­tra­tor and ar­ranger, Walz is a true show­man and cap­ti­vated the au­di­ence with his wizardry at the pi­ano, and with the light, hu­mor­ous repartee .

In the sec­ond part of the pro­gram he in­tro­duced Young Per­former vo­cal­ist, Brea Hol­land. A stu­dent at The McDonald Col­lege and the Syd­ney Con­ser­va­to­rium of Mu­sic, Hol­land en­tranced the au­di­ence with the range and power of her voice and her con­fi­dent, en­gag­ing per­for­mance skills.

Walz brought the con­cert to an end in vir­tu­oso style, per­form­ing of ti­tles to the de­light of a very ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence a ‘sym­phony’. As al­ways at the con­certs a de­li­cious af­ter­noon tea was served.

Refugees/Asy­lum Seek­ers

The Unit­ing Church Moder­a­tor is en­cour­ag­ing the Unit­ing Church to en­gage with lo­cal Fed­eral MPs in or­der to high­light a com­mit­ment to jus­tice and the pro­vi­sion of ba­sic hu­man rights for refugees and peo­ple seek­ing asy­lum. He raises the need to ex­press com­pas­sion for such peo­ple and to ad­vo­cate for those who are ig­nored or si­lenced. He also in­vites those in­ter­ested to con­tact ahogan@unit­ing.org or joo­brien@unit­ing.org.
