An en­thu­si­as­tic au­di­ence of around 90 filled re­cently the seats of the Unit­ing Church hall in Rowan Street for a per­for­mance by Mel­bourne gypsy folk band, Var­dos Trio. Pre­sented by Unit­ing in part­ner­ship with the Mel­bourne Recital Cen­tre, the con­cert se­ries aims to bring beau­ti­ful mu­sic to ru­ral Vic­to­ria while also pro­vid­ing a so­cial op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who may feel iso­lated. Those in at­ten­dance were treated to a lively per­for­mance by the three con­sum­mate mu­si­cians, Alan Hunt, Sofia Chap­man and Kiri Büch­ler, who have toured the world per­form­ing mu­sic they learned from mem­bers of the Roma (Gypsy) com­mu­nity.
