Classical music and choral concerts are held in the church from time to time, some featuring musician friends from our world-renowned neighbour, the Australian National Academy of Music ("ANAM"), based in South Melbourne. Recitals are presented by visiting internationally renowned performers from time to time.
On Sunday 28 May at 2.30pm, the second ANAM St Silas Sunday recital was performed. Braving the sudden downpours, an audience of close to 70 music-lovers was treated to excellent performances of string quartets by Haydn, Webern and Shostakovich by nine talented young ANAM musicians from the Strings Faculty.
Commenting on the program, ANAM general manager Nick Bailey suggested we could draw parallels between the time of conflict which gave rise to the Shostakovich quartet No. 8 and the troubled situation in the world today. Certainly the drama of this quartet resonated with the audience which gave all players a deeply felt ovation.
The remaining two recitals in the St Silas Sunday series will be on 17 September - ANAM Winds and 29 October - ANAM Brass.
“...You are closer to God in a garden, than anywhere else on earth.”
Would you like to be closer to God? Come and join our Garden Group which meets on the second Tuesday morning of each month at 10am to tidy our beautiful gardens and work together to make our Church grounds the envy of Albert Park. Tea, coffee and morning tea included, over a lively chat with like-minded folk.
Interested? Please see Jim Mitchell, or just turn up.
Ladies of the Parish meet for an informal lunch at Priscilla Jones Cafe, 21 Graham Street, Albert Park on the third Monday of every second month. It's a great way of getting to know others over more than a coffee on Sundays, and some great discussions and ideas have come out of it.
