Kavisha Mazella- Benefit concert for Ukrainian Refugees

Singing in English and Italian, Kavisha will take you on an uplifting boundary riding journey of well-crafted stories and songs ringing with echoes of Celtic, Fado and Gypsy influences that will strike a resounding chord within.
ARIA award winner and songbird Kavisha Mazzella original song’s lyrical ingredients include humour, poetry, social justice and the spiritual. Combine this prowess with the voice of an angel and you have the experience of a Kavisha concert. With 8 solo albums under her belt, she has sung and given vocal workshops at national music festivals and abroad.

The concert is on Sunday November 13th at 4:00 pm.

Didgeridoo, Debussy and the Birds of Oz

A vibrant art music program featuring Claude Debussy’s wonderland dreamscapes Syrinx (1913) and the Sonate for flute, viola, and harp (1915), blended with contemporary Australian ensemble and solo compositions themed around our connections to nature and to each other. The compelling experience is inspired by experiencing the joy of nature’s music and connects music and audiences with our timeless and ongoing connection to Country.A highlight of the performance will be a Yandoitian Birdbath, an audio-visual celebration of the local Yandoit birdlife featuring photography by Jodie Heap accompanied by Debussy’s Prelude La fille aux cheveux de lin [The girl with the flaxen hair] (1909) arranged for harp solo.

The acclaimed artists in the ensemble are Amos Roach, a proud Ngarrandjerri and Djab Wurrung/Gunditj Mara man, on didgeridoo, Jacinta Dennett on harp, Johanna Selleck on flute, and William Vyvyan Murray on viola. Jacinta Dennett and Johanna Selleck have collaborated since the 1990s. In 2021, they joined with Amos Roach and William Vyvyan Murray to perform Australian compositions alongside compositions by French composer Debussy. Successfully reaching a diverse Victorian regional, Melbourne, and First Nations audience, they continue to share their vision to celebrate and create their own compositions for this unique blend of instruments.

The concert is on Sunday November 27th, at 4:00 pm.
