Immerse yourself in all things art

Arts Space Wodonga is set to come alive tomorrow from 10.30am to 11.30am as it hosts the first of its live music spectacles for 2017 – ‘Music in the Gallery’.

Along with Murray Conservatorium, the venue will welcome local talent Tim Adkins for a performance followed by a light morning tea. The classical guitarist will play from a repertoire of Spanish, German, Brazilian and American music.

Arts Space Wodonga Public Programs Officer Stacey Harrison said the Music in the Gallery program is a great opportunity to be immersed in art – through both music and the surrounding works of art.

“The performance is set among the exhibition space, so visitors can take the time to properly absorb the works around them, while listing to Tim’s fabulous talent,” she said.

Tim is a talented classical guitarist with over 25 years of performance experience, including playing with Peter Lynch at Melba Conservatorium and Anthony Field at the Victorian College of the Arts.

He will be playing Passacaglia in D by Weiss, Prelude Fugue and Allegro by J.S. Bach and Sevilla by Albeniz, among other guitar works.

This session is the first of four Music in the Gallery performances to come for 2017. On Wednesday, May 10, Stephen O'Connell, Wayne Robinson and Mark Bolsius will perform a series of works influenced by the imagery and ancient cultural values of Australia and the relationships they inspire.

“These songs feature the saxophone playing of Stephen, the jazz and blues influenced piano playing of Mark and the evocative and soulful voice of Wayne,” Ms Harrison said.

Members of the public are invited to attend tomorrow’s session from 10.30am. Tickets are $5 per person, $20 per school class or $30 per group booking (maximum 10 people).
