This week on Kaleidoscope with Emily Sutherland, we feature Jack Liebeck AFCM, Ben Dollman of Adelaide Baroque, and Helen Stacey on St Andrew’s Church at Strathalbyn.
Jack Liebeck AFCM
It’s a Who’s Who of chamber music and musicians appearing in Townsville each year.
New artistic director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, violinist Jack Liebeck (pictured, above) is enjoying the challenge of setting this year’s program.
He is a man who believes in guilty secrets and the close connection between music and science.
Listen and learn.
AFCM is held in Townsville from 29 July to 7 August. Check out the details at afcm.com.au.
Ben Dollman Adelaide Baroque
Baroque violinist Ben Dollman was led into Baroque music at an early age, and has never strayed.
What he doesn’t know about it would fit on the back of a postage stamp.
He is a leading member of the Adelaide Baroque.
The Baroque Academy, now established as part of the Elder Conservatorium, is helping Ben and other musicians spread the message and share the joy with emerging musicians.
Concerts at Elder Hall on 4,7, and 8 April, at 7.30.pm will let you share the joy as well.

Helen Stacey, St Andrew’s Church Strathalbyn
St Andrews Uniting Church in Strathalbyn was built in 1848 so it is old, and feeling its age.
Helen Stacey and a group of local residents are raising funds to repair the church though a series of concerts.
The first is on 10 April, 2.00pm featuring Emma Horwood, soprano and harpist. Tickets through trybooking.
All details of this concert and those to follow are on: strathunitingchurch.org.au and click Restoration.
