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.
26 November Bach and Beyond
Joanna Fairs-Wu (soprano), Sofia Debus (violin) and Robyn Bradley (piano) will combine in various combinations to delight the soul.
The program includes J.S. Bach’s E Major Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord BWV 1016. Sofia will join with Robyn to accompany Joanna as she performs two arias from
J.S. Bach’s cantatas BWV 115 & 204, Tornami a vagheggiar from George Frederic Handel’s opera Alcina and Morgen Opus 27, No. 4 by Richard Strauss. Other arias on the program are the sublime Bist Du Bei Mir, attributed to J.S Bach, and Johann Christian Bach’s Arsinda’s Aria from the Clemency of Scipione.
Sofia, Joanna and Robyn are all highly regarded teachers and performers living in Armidale and have been responsible for some stunning performances in recent times. This is a great opportunity to hear three of Armidale’s leading musicians.
