Event Details

Alexina Hawkins is a violist who studied at the Canberra School of Music until 2011, and has been a scholar at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in Melbourne since 2012. Alexina is returning to Canberra for summer and will be performing with pianist Adam Cook at Wesley Music Centre on 18 December in a recital featuring the following works: Claude Debussy - Beau Soir; J.S. Bach - Partita No. 2; P. Hindemith - Sonata Op. 25/1; Sam Smith (former fellow student at the ANU School of Music) - Between shapes luminous and vague

Proceeds from the concert will go towards the purchase of a new bow for Alexina. She will also be performing on a remarkable 19th century viola made by G. Ceruti, which is on loan to her.

During her time at ANAM, Alexina has had the opportunity to collaborate with several significant artists from around the world, including Anthony Marwood, Tobias Lea and the Brodsky Quartet, study viola with Caroline Henbest and Christopher Moore from the Australian Chamber Orchestra and develop performances with her inspiring fellow students. Alexina will be pursuing study opportunities overseas in 2014 and is excited to return to Canberra and perform for old friends, as well as meet new ones, at this recital!


Featured non-Australian music: Partita No. 2 (J.S. Bach), Sonata Op. 25/1 (Paul Hindemith), Beau Soir (C. Debussy)
