Pop­u­lar pi­anists to play in the Sun­day mati­nee con­cert

Manawatu Guardian - - STEPPING OUT... -

Pop­u­lar pi­ano duet Chris­tine Archer Lock­wood and Guy Don­ald­son will be per­form­ing at the Globe Theatre Sun­day mati­nee con­cert series.

The duet en­joys bring­ing their life­long ex­pe­ri­ence and skills as mu­sic teach­ers and per­form­ers to new op­por­tu­ni­ties in the com­mu­nity.

The con­cert will be­gin with the pop­u­lar Ar­rival of the Queen of Sheba by Han­del, and will progress to a sonata by Mozart dur­ing which the duet will en­gage in a lively and sus­tained mu­sic di­a­logue.

Given their taste for tak­ing au­di­ences to new ter­ri­to­ries, the duet will go Rus­sian with mu­sic by Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Rachmaninov and will fin­ish with a toe-tap­ping per­for­mance of Franz Liszt’s most pop­u­lar piece, Sec­ond Hun­gar­ian Rhap­sody.

Chris­tine was nom­i­nated best mu­si­cal di­rec­tor for Levin’s Lit­tle Theatre pro­duc­tion of Spa­malot in the 2017 Re­gional Theatre awards.

She was also one of the two pi­anists for the Re­nais­sance Singers’ Carmina Bu­rana and will be co-con­duct­ing their con­cert on Septem­ber 2.

■ The pro­gramme of pi­ano duets will be hel­dat the Globe Theatre, Au­gust 26 at 2.30pm. Ad­mis­sion is by min­i­mum do­na­tion of $5.
