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.
ANAM ARTISTS – WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Over the past six years, we have enjoyed wonderful recitals by musicians of the Australian National Academy of Music. Here is news about some of these talented young artists.
Violinist Madeleine Jevons, winner of the 2013 St Silas Prize, and the Penny Quartet will be giving a recital in the Salon at the Melbourne Recital Centre on Monday 27 November.
Clarinettist Lloyd van t’Hoff, with ANAM Fellowship ensemble Arcadia Winds, have performed at numerous music festivals around Australia since their recital at St Silas in 2014 as well as at the Melbourne Recital Centre and were appointed Musica Viva’s inaugural FutureMakers.
Percussionist Thea Rossen who gave a recital in 2015 has formed a duo with wind player Luke Carbon and is embarking on a recital program at various Melbourne venues, and fellow percussionist Kaylie Melville who also performed in Thea’s recital is currently in New|York, poised between fellowships in Rotterdam and California.
The 2016 ANAM St Silas prizewinner, double bass player Alex Arei-Swale (pictured), will give a recital in the Salon at the Melbourne Recital Centre on Tuesday 29 August at 6pm, and this program will be repeated at ANAM on Wednesday 13 September at 1pm.
And a reminder that the next ANAM recital at St Silas is on Sunday 17 September at 2.30pm, when the Winds Faculty will take us on a journey from Mozart through to the 20th
century. The last recital in the 2017 St Silas Sunday series will be on 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.
Art Classes are on on Tuesdays at 1.00 p.m. during School Terms
Our Art Teacher Victoria Hartcup conducts a class on Tuesdays during school terms. Lessons are only $10 each per week, an absolute bargain when CAE courses cost $370 concession for tuition lasting only five weeks ($74 per lesson!). Please speak to or email Catherine if you would like to know more.
