CONTRASTS – NSW DOCTORS ORCHESTRA
20th May 2018 @ 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
The NSW Doctors Orchestra
Over 80 doctors and medical students from throughout NSW will perform under the baton of Dr David Banney in their annual Musicus Medicus fundraiser. This year’s concert offers an afternoon of sublime music, varied and contrasting in style and origin, with compositions from France, Russia, Mexico and Australia. The highlight will be the Sydney premiere performance of Elena Kats-Chernin’s Flute Concerto “Night and Now”, written especially for soloist and distinguished flautist Sally Walker.
The program also includes:
Gabriel Faure: Pelleas et Melisande Suite, Op. 80
Rimsky Korsakov: Capriccio espagnol, Op. 34
Arturo Marquez: Danzon No.2
In addition, a children’s choir from Banksmeadow School will perform with Don Spencer, backed by the orchestra, to sing a couple of his iconic songs.
All concert proceeds will fund the NSW Drs Orchestra Sydney Eisteddfod Instrumental Scholarship, and benefit Australian Children’s Music Foundatoin (ACMF), founded by Don Spencer, to help ACMF to continue to provide free music education and instruments to disadvantaged children and youth at risk throughout Australia
