Affinity Quartet Workshop
by philip (20th March 20)
The four members of Affinity Quartet, as part of the Shepparton Festival, provided a 2 hour workshop with local string players, on Sunday 15th March at La Trobe University, Shepparton, from 10.00 am to midday. They helped members of the orchestra through Beethoven's Egmont Overture and also helped us analyse what decisions need to be made when performing a quartet piece. They played us a section of a Haydn quartet and a short movement of a quartet by Weber, by way of example. All in all it was a very worthwhile workshop and a pleasure to play with such accomplished musicians and hear their expertise. Thank you to Nick Waters (first violin), Ioana Tache (second violin), William Clark, (viola) and Mee Na Lojewski (cello) for giving this workshop and imparting their very considerable expertise.
Bushfire Appeal Concert
by philip (20th March 20)
GVCO played some of its items in preparation for this year's June Concert (including The Light Cavalry Overture, The Can Can and the Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana). The concert was performed in conjunction with 36 Degrees South Choir and the Shepparton Brass and Wind Band, as well as some members of Shepparton Theatre Arts Group - Jan Deane, Nicky Pummeroy, Phil Oakes, Kat Mahoney - in order to raise funds for bushfire victims. Specifically the funds were directed equally to The Bendigo Bank Bushfire Fund and a group called "Resound", which funds musicians who have lost instruments in the fires. Over $3000 was raised in total.
