Burrinja September 2015
On Sunday the 13th of September, 2015 in a co-presentation with
the Burrinja Cultural Centre,170 patrons were present for what was a most
enjoyable afternoon of music making. Under the baton of Eric Klay,
the Nicholas Chamber Orchestra performed Elegy for Strings - a
beautiful tribute to Jenny Morrish, percussionist/timpanist who passed away
Robert Schubert (clarinet), Anne Martonyi (violin I),
Martonyi (violin II), Rosalind Burns (viola)
and Joanna Tidy (cello), playing
Mozart's Clarinet Quintet.
It was a great opportunity for The Ranges Young Strings to come
and perform as a group in the foyer and with the orchestra in Haydn's Toy
Symphony. A delight to see the intensity on the young faces whilst performing
this music. We may eventually see some players take up percussion!
