The concerts are performed in the church at 12.30 pm on the last Sunday of each month to coincide with the Armidale Markets in the Mall. They are short concerts (about half an hour) presented by a wide variety of Armidale musicians and musical groups. |
All are welcome. Entry is by donation.
They are preceded at 11.30 by Sunday Xplorer, which is a sausage sizzle and other food.
Duets for flute and oboe will be performed by Sharon Davidge and Li Ling Chen. The program will include music by Woodall, Stamitz, Joplin and others.
Sharon and Li Ling are two prominent Armidale musicians and teachers and this is a great opportunity to hear some unusual repertoire.
(not actually a Market Sunday)
This concert will feature works for trombone and horn by Beethoven and Weber played by Nicholas Hadfield and Dave Brown accompanied by John Clifton Everest.
Nicholas and John will play Beethoven’s Sonata for French Horn and Piano op 17. This is an early work from 1800 and when it was played in Budapest a critic asked “Who is this Beethoven?” He discovered the answer over the next few years.
Dave and John will play Weber’s Romance for Trombone and Piano, which might not be by Weber at all but no one else has yet claimed it. Probably originally written for bassoon, trombonists have seized on it as a rare example of late classical/early romantic repertoire. This is a great opportunity to hear two of Armidale‘s leading brass players with music of two hundred years ago.
