Moody songs in English

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

VIC­TO­RIA Park res­i­dent and vi­ola da gamba player Makota Har­ris Takao is set to take part in Songs in English, a show­case of lo­cal mu­si­cians and singers ready to hon­our com­posers from over four cen­turies.

This per­for­mance marks Art Song Perth’s first 2016 con­cert.

Artis­tic di­rec­tor Mar­i­lyn Phillips said the pro­gram for Songs in English was var­ied and would have some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“The pro­gram has mu­si­cal moods from the beauty to the bawdy; the re­flec­tive to the ro­man­tic and the di­vine to the debonair,” she said.

Art Song Perth will host four more recitals dur­ing the year in May, July, Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion aims to en­hance the mu­si­cal life of Western Aus­tralia through the per­for­mance and pro­mo­tion of art song. Each year, it presents a se­ries of recitals by both ex­pe­ri­enced and emerg­ing artists.
