Event description

Description

Musica da Camera is celebrating being part of the Canberra music scene for 40 years with a special concert of string orchestra music under the leadership of Barbara-Jane Gilby, concertmaster of the Canberra Symphony Orchestra. The concert will feature a viola concerto with soloist Lucy Carrigy-Ryan and exploit the acoustics of the High Court of Australia building with works including Edward Elgar’s Serenade, Graham Koehne first movement from the Shaker Dances, Alfred Hill’s first movement of the String Quartet No 3, Arvo Part’s Summa, Paul Hindemith’s Trauermusik and arrangement of Gabriel's Oboe by Moriconi.

The group asks a different conductor to lead each of the three or four programs a year, providing a range of repertoire and styles. The players in the group are professional string teachers or players and talented amateurs from a range of professions. The orchestra performs at least three concerts a year at the Holy Covenant Church in Cook. Each concert is then repeated at a country concert in places such as Cooma, Gunning and Goulburn.
