Good things come in threes as does Kaleidoscope this week, with Robert Nairn, Anthony Hunt and Celia Craig as my guests.
Robert Nairn, whose abilities as a bass player have taken him all over the world, has now become the General Manager of Adelaide Baroque, determined that although they did not receive their funding this year, the group will continue to function and perform ,as they have done for forty-seven years.
Their program for 2023 incudes some impressive artists and music, beginning with Scarlatti Stabat Mater and Vivaldi Nisi Dominus, at St Francis Xavier Cathedral, 7.30pm Friday March 31.
It will also be performed at Sevenhill and Burra, but check all the details of this event and the others planned for the year at: adelaidebaroque.com.au
Anthony Hunt is both the man in charge of music at St Peter’s Cathedral, and Chorus Master at SA State Opera. No surprise that the first concert in the St Peter’s Cathedral Music Foundation Concert Series 2023 is Opera Meets Organ! Jessica Dean soprano and Andrew Goodwin, tenor are the singers. Music ranges from Puccini to Purcell, with a little Wagner, which Anthony says sounds magnificent in the cathedral. March 4. 2.00pm
On Good Friday a performance of Rutter’s Requiem – mediation for that solemn day. This is a free event.
