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.
Songs written in and about Armidale feature in this concert. Kylie Constantine will be singing songs composed by Benjamin Thorn to texts by Val Chubb that explore whimsical aspects of life in Armidale, including the landscape and pets. She will be accompanied by Kees Grenyer. Val Chubb is a poet with a great sense of fun, and a keen eye for the absurd,
which makes some of her poems ideal for song lyrics, with their rhythm and wit. Over the years Benjamin Thorn has set a number of these to music, most recently a collection aimed at children from which this concert program is selected. Kylie Constantine is one of Armidale’s leading singers and performs in a range of contexts.
This is a great opportunity to hear a totally Armidale concert: words music and
performers and have a lot of fun at the same time.
