August is going to be a big month for the Montague Choristers and Visiting Artists.
At 2:30 pm on Sunday, August 20, the Montague Choristers will be singing Songs of Sundrie Natures - a selection of wonderful music by William Byrd, including several movements of his Mass for Four Voices, as well as some of his shorter works. As an instrumental interlude we'll present the Trio Sonata in G major BWV 1039 by JS Bach performed by Cathie Doherty (flute), Philip Hartstein (violin) and Lada Marcelja (cello). This concert is at All Saints' Anglican Church, Bodalla and entry is by donation.
Then, at 2:30 pm on Saturday August 26 the Affinity Quartet returns to Narooma fresh from their triumph at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition where they won the Grand Prize for best ensemble, first prize for best string quartet and the audience prize!
