Notos Nonet is proudly presenting a Chamber Music Concert on Sunday 3rd April, 2016 at 2:30pm to help raise funds for the Adelaide branch of SAWA - Support Association for the Women of Afghanistan.
This special event will take place at Flinders Street Baptist Church, Adelaide and feature performances of well-known 19th century Romantic works by Louise Farrenc (1804 – 1875), one of the few French women of her time to have a successful career as a composer, and Louis Spohr (1784 – 1859), a German composer, conductor and violinist whose nonet was the first composition to bear the name 'Nonet'.
During the afternoon, audiences will enjoy a programme featuring Nonet in E-flat major, Opus 38, composed 1849 by Louise Farrenc, followed by Nonet in F major, Opus 31, composed 1813 by Louis Spohr.
Both works will be performed by Notos Nonet, a group of nine accomplished Adelaide musicians brought together to perform 19th century nonet music. Group members include Susan Currie (violin), Iarla Bastians (viola), Sally Stephenson, (cello), Lucy Hatcher (double bass), Mandy Hutchinson (flute), Ming-Lyn Hii (oboe), Philip Stephenson (clarinet), Caryl Lambourn (bassoon) and Paul Hampton-Smith (horn).
Tickets for this event are now on sale online and will also be available at the door at the price of $20 pp or $15 Concession.
Proceeds from this concert event will be donated to SAWA-Australia (SA), an association which raises funds to assist in development and relief projects for women and children in Afghanistan and increases community awareness of the needs of Afghanistan's women and children.
