Christmas Crackers with Roger Jonsson

  • Memorial Hall Healsville 235 Maroondah Highway Healesville, VIC, 3777 Australia (map)

Join the Orchestra Victoria to close out the year with this final concert in the Five on Fridays series.
To capture the festive spirit of the holiday season, Orchestra Victoria’s Acting Concertmaster Roger Jonsson has curated a program of chamber music delights. 
Piazzolla’s Winter, based on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, evokes wild winters in Argentina, while Ralph Vaughn-Williams’ Piano Quintet in C Minor takes us through lyrical English landscapes. Back on local shores, we celebrate the favourite Australian drama The Doctor Blake Mysteries with its haunting and mysterious theme written by Melbourne-based composer, Dale Cornelius, specially arranged for this performance. 
Stay on after the performance for a meet and greet with the musicians and a glass of bubbly and canapés.

Three performances:
Friday December 8 at 7:30pm, Memorial Hall Healsville
Saturday December 9 at 5pm, St Luke's Church South Melbourne
Sunday December 10 at 2pm, Bowery Theatre, St Albans Community Centre
