FIRST CONCERT in 2018: Monday 5th March
Alexander Yau is a versatile prize-winning pianist who performs both as a recitalist and as a soloist with many orchestras in Australia and overseas. In this concert for the Killara Music Club he played, with great skill and feeling, a variety of interesting and beautiful piano music by Brahms, Bach, Beethoven, Szymanowski and Chopin. It was a very impressive and highly enjoyable performance. This brilliant young pianist has a great future ahead of him.
SECOND CONCERT, Monday April 16th: Conservatorium Jazz Orchestra Since its inception in the 1970s, the Sydney Conservatorium Jazz Orchestra has formed an alumni that features many of the leading lights in Australian Jazz. The orchestra’s debut national tour in 2013 was widely acclaimed, and in 2015 they performed at the Chicago Mid-West Conference. The Director/Conductor, David Theak, has been a tireless advocate for large ensemble jazz in Australia. This group of talented young players presented a program of lively and entertaining jazz compositions, featuring many members of the orchestra as soloists.
NEXT CONCERT, Monday July 16th
Vincent Lo (cellist) with Paul Cheung (piano)
For Vincent’s biography, see the “2018 Concerts” page. Paul Cheung is another brilliant and versatile young musician who not only plays piano accompaniment but has also performed solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire in venues across Australia, working with the NSW and Australian Youth Orchestras and the SSO. Vincent and Paul will perform works by Schumann, Bach, Chopin and Shostakovich, concluding with a Scherzo by Julius Klengel, a melodic, energetic and fervent piece designed to end any concert of a virtuoso cellist in style.
