Clas­si­cal cul­ture to take over hall

Stanthorpe Border Post - - WHAT'S ON LIFE -

AT 3 o’clock on Sun­day, a dozen mu­si­cians will have their fin­gers poised over their in­stru­ments, ready to play the theme song from The Man from Snowy River,

their open­ing piece at the Eclec­tic Con­cert at Lis­ton.

The mu­si­cians have come to­gether to help raise money to buy a pi­ano for the Lis­ton Hall – a rather fit­ting way to aug­ment fundrais­ing ef­forts that Lis­ton peo­ple have al­ready put in.

Con­cert or­gan­iser Nick Negere­vich has been a

Lis­ton res­i­dent for the past two years.

Nick has worked for the Aus­tralian Opera and Bal­let Orches­tra (Syd­ney Opera House), Ed­u­ca­tion Queens­land and more re­cently took on the role of Head of Wood­wind Stud­ies at the New Eng­land

Con­ser­va­to­rium of Mu­sic in Ar­mi­dale un­til he re­tired two years ago.

He said the con­cert would be a blend of clas­si­cal, light clas­si­cal, pop­u­lar and Celtic mu­sic, with af­ter­noon tea in­cluded in the $10 en­try.

Spe­cial fea­ture artist for the con­cert will be Judy Hinch, a Celtic harpist.

Judy hails from Ar­mi­dale but she and her hus­band also have a re­treat on the Gran­ite Belt where they love to spend time.

Other so­los, duets and fea­ture pieces will in­clude Es­ther Plath and Belinda Lis­ter play­ing Shostakovich, Cameron Smith with Es­ther and backed by other play­ers for some Vi­valdi, Hu­bert Creevy play­ing Enya’s “Water­mark”, Nick on key­board, David Martin bring­ing an ex­tra di­men­sion to the con­cert’s sound with his won­der­ful bas­soon play­ing and Jenel Hunt sing­ing two dif­fer­ent songs.

Lo­cals who usu­ally play to­gether for fun are join­ing as Note­wor­thy, a mostly string en­sem­ble.

Along with the play­ers al­ready men­tioned will be Kather­ine Trent, Mor­wenna Harslett, Denise Harslett and War­wick school­girl Alyssa Welsh.

If you en­joy mu­sic, join th­ese mu­si­cians for a lovely af­ter­noon on Sun­day.
