Event Details

Join Sirius Chamber Ensemble as we explore the music of local composers Christine Draeger and Paul Smith. We have invited both composers to speak about their works in-between performances. Through an informal discussion you will be able to hear about their compositional influences, writing style and have your questions to the composers answered. The concert will feature premiere performances of Christine Draeger’s Variations on a Patriotic Love Song for Wind Quintet and Paul’s Smith’s new work based on Norse mythology, The Death of Baldr for flute, clarinet, bassoon, cello and piano. The program also includes recent music by our featured composers. The performance will be held in the intimate and relaxed setting of Glebe Justice Centre (formerly Glebe Café Church), with comfortable lounges, BYO food and drink, tea and coffee provided.

Sirius Chamber Ensemble - Melissa Coleman (flute), Ian Sykes (clarinet), Alison Evans (bassoon), Julia Zeltzer (french horn), Claire Howard Race (piano). Guest artists - Alex Fontaine (oboe), Taryn Srhoj (soprano), Jermaine Chau (soprano)
