The Enoggera Ensemble, together with the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) presents an intimate concert of fascinating historical music from Queensland’s colonial days. The concert will take place in the parlour of Wolston Farmhouse at 3:00pm on Sunday, March 18 followed by Devonshire tea and a guided tour of the beautiful property.
Wolston Farmhouse is one of the National Trust of Australia’s (Queensland) properties, and Brisbane’s oldest residential farmhouse.
The group comprises Duncan Gardiner (guitar and ukulele) Marissa Carroll (mandolin), Joel Woods (banjo and mandola) and Dominic Ward (guitar). The Enoggera Ensemble delights in bringing Australia’s rich colonial music history to life in a powerful and dynamic way. The Enoggera Ensemble promises a highly original and unique concert experience taking you back to yesteryear and beyond with their blend of classical, jazz, folk and Australiana.
This intimate parlour concert will include music from the once-popular operas Caliph of Baghdad and Maritana. Sousa’s Liberty Bell March features alongside several toe-tapping rag-time and swing numbers. Old-time American folk songs will also be presented in covers for banjo and ukulele. A highlight of the concert will be the beloved hymn, Nearer, My God, to Thee, reportedly performed by a quartet as the Titanic sank. The ensemble will close the concert with a folksy arrangement of Advance Australia Fair.
Included are new, original arrangements and 're-imagined' versions of historical works that were once performed in Queensland between 1840-1940. All of the historical works have been especially arranged for the ensemble by Australian composer, Duncan Gardiner.
