Described as ‘one of the finest artists in the world’ (John Andrew, Weekend Notes), Simon Tedeschi is in Wollongong for one night only!
WollCon is proud to be part of this fundraising concert which also features violinist Cedar Newman, whose ‘breathtakingly virtuosic performance’ (Helen Muse, City News) is gaining attention, and our own BlueScope Youth Orchestra.
Concert MC is Malika Elizabeth Reese, an Illawarra-based educator and entertainer.
Simon and Cedar perform works celebrating music of the 1920s / 1930s.
The infusion of jazz into classical music and the exploration of form and tonal centres during this period brought new colours and excitement to the classical genre. Hear Gershwin/Heifetz, Porgy and Bess Suite-Ravel’s Blues Sonata for Violin and Piano -Bloch’s - Poeme Mystique and Prokofiev’s, Songs Without Words.
WollCon’s BlueScope Youth Orchestra will perform music presented during its recent tour of NewZealand with repertoire by much loved composers such as Dvorkas and Sibelius in a program unified by folk and dance traditions.
