Mother's Day Musical Soiree

Sunday, May 10, 2015 - 11:30pm
Mother’s Day treat you won’t forget!  

Mother's Day is the 10th of May, so come and celebrate the special women in your life and be inspired by music from three generations of Australia’s women composers (Margaret Sutherland, Anne Boyd, Elena Kats-Chernin, Cat Hope, Dulcie Holland and Miriam Hyde) performed by three outstanding musicians, Ashley William Smith (clarinet), Irina Vasilieva (piano) and Laura McGrogan (cello).

Hear the triumph and tragedy of some of Australia’s most inventive and overlooked composers. Beauty, power and  talent combine in an exotic Mother’s Day treat you won’t forget.

This one-off spectacular concert is being hosted by SNADENS PIANOS in their iconic showroom on Sunday, 10th May at 3:30pm. Enjoy light refreshments, ask questions, meet new people, and talk directly to the author as the Music Journalist Rosalind Appleby presents the music behind her book 'Women of Note’.

“Appleby’s strong suit is undoubtedly her talent for relating the human joys and struggles of these female artists, facilitated by the insights she gained during a two year period of one-on-one interviews with many of them. Her book succeeds above all as a collection of intimate biographical portraits – intensely personal and often moving – of a group of individuals who, though diverse in character, are united by their gender and their drive to ‘pluck music from the air’. Women of Note has filled an important gap in Australian music literature and might prove to be the pioneering book for more much-needed documentation in the field.”

Ilario Colli Limelight Magazine

“ makes an excellent starting point for anyone interested in exploring the music of Australian women composers.

...Women of Note reveals some fascinating details and experiences of the women it surveys. The musical lives and survival stories of all the women featured in Women of Note are inspiring. One can almost believe anything is possible. At the very least women of all ages can find in it a variety of survival tips for women composers: remain a kid inside, try the fool-proof-mother’s method, adopt a missionary zeal, find religion or just a room of one’s own.”
