2014 history

Fringe

Once again, we were part of the Marvellous Music at St Mary Mags on 16th March at 2.30pm at St Mary Magdalene’s, Moore Street, Adelaide.

We were joined by members of the Victoriana Society who helped pull back the drapery and invited a healthy audience to step into the intimate surrounds of the 19th century middle-class.

We sang of patriotism, love and courtship, lost loves and the Victorian love of silliness – we nearly got arrested for the speed of Polly Wolly Doodle …

Good Friday reflections

Once again, joined Bishop Ian George & supplement his wonderful talks on pieces at the Art Gallery.  An excellent turnout of people this year – it was thoroughly enjoyable to send the music skyward on such a significant day.

Friday 18th April 2014.  The Art Gallery, North Terrace, Adelaide.
