"Majestic Masters of the Baroque"

Come and enjoy an afternoon of beautiful Baroque music by Bach, Handel and Pergolesi

Saturday 18 August at 2pm

 

All four members have had international performing experience. Hungarian soprano Judit Molnar has sung throughout Europe and Asia. In 2011 she received her first contract with Opera Australia and has since sung with major Australian orchestras and venues, most recently with the Underground Opera at the Sydney Opera House. Margaret Caley (violin) graduated from the Royal Conservatory, The Hague and has performed in many baroque orchestras in Europe and Australia. Belinda Manwaring (cello) has performed with the SSO, ACO and Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra. In 2017 she attended the Nelson Bach Residency, NZ. Janet Brewer (harpsichord) holds two Masters Degrees from Qld Conservatorium of Music and has continued early music study in Norway and England. She has performed with the QSO Chamber Players, Camerata of St John's and the Gold Coast Chamber Orchestra.

Unbeknown to most movie goers Baroque music is often heard in movie sound tracks such as "Thor: Ragnerok", "Master and Commander" and "Truly, Madly, Deeply" to name a very few. This programme will include excerpts for Pergolesi's comic opera "La Serva Padrona", Handel's "Nine German Arias", Corelli's "La Folia" and of course the true master of Baroque, J S Bach. The four ladies love bringing Baroque music live to their audiences! Afternoon tea will follow the concert. Please stay to meet the performers.
