FCO concert Emily Leung

 

Young violinist Emily Leung will be playing with the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra at the Fremantle Townhall tomorrow Sunday July 23 at 3 pm.

Beethoven, Bruch and Mendelssohn are on the program so it should be a beautiful afternoon of great classical music.

If you can’t make it tomorrow, or want to listen to the concert twice, they are also performing today at 3 pm at the Perth Town Hall.

If you want to listen to him twice you can also do that on March 4 at the Government House Ballroom.

HERITAGE OF THE FUTURE ARCHITECTURE

I hopped on the train to Perth to listen to the free lunchtime Musical Morsels concert by WASO musicians at the Concert Hall there and on my way took some photos of the new Perth library.

What an exquisitely minimalist and classic building this is that would be a great iconic feature at Fremantle’s Kings Square. It’s the kind of heritage of the future architecture that I would love to see in Freo and it was designed by Freo architects Kerry Hill who also created the new Civic Centre for the City of Fremantle.

And the free WASO concert with cellist Louse McKay was superb and around 130 people were in the audience.
