Sib­lings set to shine

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

A COMO sib­ling duo are set to treat the com­mu­nity to one last clas­si­cal mu­sic per­for­mance be­fore jet-set­ting out of Perth.

Vi­o­lin­ist Mar­lene Crone and pi­anist and or­gan­ist Michael Crone plan to bring the sounds of Europe to the St John’s Lutheran Church with their con­cert An Evening in Europe.

Af­ter spend­ing five years study­ing to com­plete her Master of Mu­sic in Ger­many, Mar­lene said she was ex­cited to play the spe­cial show with her brother be­fore she re­turned over­seas.

“It’s very ex­cit­ing to play a show with my brother. I’ve been in Ger­many for the past five years and don’t see him of­ten,” she said.

“And this will be the first time we’ve per­formed to­gether, just the two of us.”

The tal­ented duo will treat au­di­ence mem­bers to the sounds of clas­sics in­clud­ing Bach, Mozart and more. Mar­lene said she was look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to her stud­ies in clas­si­cal mu­sic in Ger­many.

“The op­por­tu­ni­ties in Ger­many and Europe are end­less. My ul­ti­mate goal is to win a po­si­tion with a top Ger­man or­ches­tra,” she said.

An Evening in Europe is on Septem­ber 26 at 7.30pm. Tick­ets at St John’s on 9227 8072.

Sib­lings Michael and Mar­lene Crone will per­form to­gether.
