Take a trip down memory lane!
Here are our past newsletters to give you an idea of what we have been up to.
We were happy with the success of our Mozart and Bach double bill Double Trouble in Sydney. So were audiences and reviewers! We featured our soloists, ever-growing band of volunteers and paid professional musicians. We look forward to taking the production Bach to the Bush in September.
We reflected on our performance of the 'Coffee Cantata' and Peer Gynt excerpts in Taree and the tiny town of Bobin. These were the first two shows in our 'Bach to the Bush' Tour to rural NSW. We also report on the splendid Nordic Noir shows, give a shout out to playwright Fredrik Brattberg, and announce Double Trouble, our upcoming Mozart and Bach double bill.
We explored 'The subtle art of translation' with our resident Ibsen expert May-Brit Akerholt and took the 'troll challenge', making wierdly beautiful and complicated felt, troll-head props for our Peer Gynt herd girls (see photo). Music Director Peter Alexander went into more depth about the Coffee Cantata with 'A look under the hood at the music'. We found an unexpected Harry Potter connection!
Reeling from the impact of Covid 19 on our live performances, we reported on socially-distanced rehearsals of Peer Gynt and mused on the prescience of Henrik Ibsen and his play's modern relevance. We also profiled our very own Peer - singer Michael Handy, and taste-tested a Norwegian delicacy - Brunost!
