Classical lovers are in for a treat with Art Song Perth's first concert in its 25th anniversary year.

The March 28 concert will feature international singing sensation Aldo Di Toro (Tenor), Stephanie Gooch (Soprano), Lachlann Lawton (Baritone), Madeleine Joyce (Mezzo-Soprano) and Marilyn Phillips (Piano).



The programme will include music by the wonderful masters of Italian song Rossini, Puccini, Bellini, Donizetti and Tosti, as well as a selection of German songs by Richard Strauss and Mendelssohn, evocative songs by English composer Vaughan Williams, sultry Spanish music by Manuel De Falla and the lively Gypsy Song quartets by Brahms. There really is something for everyone.



This concert, the first of four in the Art Song Perth 25th Birthday season is particularly special, due to the appearance of Italian-Australian tenor Di Toro, who also calls Perth home. He will sing his favourite familiar Italian songs, as well as the divine Petrarch Sonnets by Franz Liszt. They may present a challenge for voice and piano, but Di Toro, accompanied by his long-time collaborator Marilyn Phillips, loves a challenge.

Gooch, who recently appeared with Di Toro in The Phantom of the Opera in Perth, and rising stars Joyce, and Lawton will round out a programme designed to appeal to all music lovers, whether experienced concert-goers or not.

For those unfamiliar with the term art song, it simply means songs that were written specifically for voice and piano, with beautiful words, in many different languages.

Expand your senses and enjoy a feast of song for the ears at The Church of the Resurrection, Swanbourne on March 28 at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost $15-30 and can be booked at TryBooking or here .

Save the dates for three more concerts - May 10, July 12 and a gala concert on August 15, 2015.

The Church of the Resurrection is at 105 Shenton Road, Swanbourne.
