With a winning combination of talent, musicality and youthful vivacity, the Musica Viva award winning Strelitzia Trio is captivating audiences with their innovative programs and palpable love of performing great chamber music together. After first performing in Newcastle with two programs during 2011, they return to perform their program, ‘800 Million Heartbeats’ at Adamstown Uniting Church on 11 August. The Trio is particularly excited to be performing the premiere of a new piece, which they commissioned specially, called Chaconne by Newcastle composer and pianist, Andrew Chubb. Andrew is a teacher at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music, and is very dedicated to performing and creating new music. He is particularly influenced by the music of world renowned composer Phillip Glass, who he has dedicated his new work to in honour of his 80th Birthday. Other works on the program include Trios by Mozart and Mendelssohn, as well as another contemporary work, 800 Million Heartbeats by Melbourne based composer Stuart Greenbaum. The audience is in safe hands with this group – Violinist Victoria Jacono-Gilmovich and Cellist Eleanor Betts are past and current members of the Sydney Symphony’s illustrious Fellowship program, and Belinda McGlynn, originally from Cooranbong, has recently returned to NSW after postgraduate study at the prestigious Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.
