Event description

Description

“Music is my way of creating messages, memories, therapy and enjoyment for all.”

For one night only at the iconic Elder Hall, Meraldi-Peramangk Ngarrindjeri woman Cheryl van Wageningen will share her story through music.

Cheryl, a Stolen Generation survivor, is proud to have recently graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Music (Musicology). Her lifelong passion for playing the classical piano has evolved into composing her own music and in 2018, Cheryl released her first CD. It features three deeply moving pieces that she composed which reflect her connection to the Coorong.

Along with her original music, Cheryl will play a selection of classical and timeless contemporary pieces from throughout history.

Her previous public performances have included playing piano at Alice Springs (Foyer of The Hilton- 2012 , 2016), Apology Day Luncheon, Adelaide (2017, 2018), Festival Fleurieu, S.A. (2015, 2017) and she enjoys performing regularly for the residents of Southern Cross Care (SA & NT) Inc.

Join us for this special event and learn more about Cheryl’s story through her captivating music.

Cheryl will be available for a meet and greet after the performance and you will have the opportunity to purchase her first CD!

Part proceeds will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and the Australian Children's Music Foundation

The public event will be recorded for a special documentary for NITV. By registering to attend, you agree to your photo/video images being used for this purpose.
