Lure the ladies to chamber concert
ARIOSO Chamber Ensemble will perform a concert of
Love and Celebrations at the Caloundra Uniting Church at 2.30pm on Sunday, May 20.
As part of the 4MBS Festival of Classics the ladies have been lured by the musically appreciative City of Caloundra to bring their unique sound and music.
Their programme will traverse the rocky terrain of love with Monteverdi’s alluring Sì dolce è ‘l tormento and Lamento della Ninfa, Caccini’s Amarilli, mia bella and JS Bach’s Bist du bei mir and Beriete dir, Jesu.
The programme will also celebrate Couperin’s 350th birthday with his Third Concert Royaux in A, and Barbella’s 300th birthday with his violin sonata in Bb, just to name a couple.
Arioso features Hungarian soprano Judit Molnár and baroque instrumentalists Margaret Caley (violin), Belinda Manwaring (cello) and Janet Brewer (harpsichord).
The ensemble has regularly performed at music festivals including Sandgate’s Music by the Sea, and the Caloundra Fringe and New England Bach Festivals.
Individually each artist has performed internationally. Janet is a long-term performer on the Sunshine Coast.
She is artistic director of Pacific Chamber Players who are often seen at Caloundra Uniting Church. Most recently she was pianist for A Chorus Line at the Caloundra Events Centre.
It will surely be an afternoon to delight and remember. Tickets are $28 adults, $25 concession, $7 school students.
