Musica da Camera Cooma Concert 2010

Musica da Camera in concert on Sunday 21 November 2010 at St Paul’s Anglican Church Hall, prosthetic Cooma.

An audience of over 60 people was treated to a lovely concert by Canberra-based chamber orchestra, Musica da Camera. This wonderful group of musicians was ably directed by Rowan Harvey-Martin.

The lush rich sounds of  Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings was a perfect work  to open the concert. After a short intermission, harpist Meriel Owen performed Debussy’s Sacred and Profane Dances with the orchestra. She played this favourite of the harp repertoire beautifully.

The next piece was Radastave Op. 146 No. 2 by Jean Sibelius. Sibelius is said to evoke the landscape of his beloved Finland in this and many of his works.

The orchestra was then joined by Anthony Smith. This extremely talented pianist  performed “Eclogue for Piano and Strings” by the British Composer, Gerald Finzi (1901-1956). This work was also a treat for me  as I am unfamiliar with this composer. It was a lovely piece played beautifully by Anthony Smith and Musica da Camera.

The concert was received very positively by an enthusiastic Cooma audience, and I’m sure that they would love to hear Musica da Camera perform again in Cooma in the near future.

Musica da Camera will be performing next in Canberra on Saturday 9 April 2011 at 2:30 pm, at Holy Covenant Anglican Church, Cook.

Cooma Music Competition Was A Great Success

Well, stomach what a huge day and evening it was on Sunday. But it was fun!

We had over 55 performances in the heats during the afternoon and 16 performances in the Finals Concert.

A special thanks again to the judges, Glenyss Allen, Matt Charlesworth, Marián Budoŝ and Ivana Troŝelj. Our wonderful Glenyss judged the solo piano heats and Matt, Marián and Ivana judged the rest of the heats and Finals Concert. Thanks too to Paul Mackay for all the great work he did on the PA system.

and the winners in the heats were…
  • Mia Mrsic – Piano Primary
  • Nicole Goggin – Piano Secondary
  • Esther Lachmund – Solo Voice Secondary
  • Karen Klima – Solo Voice Open
  • Tim Cooke – Original Composition Secondary/Open
  • Mark Salvestro & Miranda Evans – Vocal Group Secondary/Open
  • India & Jade Old – Instrumental Primary
  • Nick Tugwell & Alex Wiles – Instrumental Secondary
  • Darcy Clayton – Classical Guitar Primary
  • Esa Janara – Classical Guitar Secondary/Open
  • Madeleine Rooney – Solo Instrumental Primary
  • Alex Wiles – Solo Instrumental Secondary
The 5 “Wild Cards” were:
  • Lucky (Instrumental Ensemble)
  • Annaka Dykstra (Acoustic Guitar)
  • Sarah Lachmund (Clarinet)
  • Daniel Morassutti (Drums)
  • Tamara John-Natley (Violin)
and the overall winners from the Finals Concert were:
  • Daniel Morassutti (Drums) – Frank Scott Music Award Trophy
  • Annaka Dykstra (Guitar) – Russell & Jackie Fox Music Award Trophy
  • Tim Clooke (Vocal) – Ron Cox Music Award Trophy
  • Esa Janara  – Narrawong Classical Guitar Award Trophy

Congratulations to all the winners and all the performers for a wonderful competition and concert. This year was particularly difficult for the judges as the scores were so close (often by just one point or dead heat, even with three judges!). As a result, there was a record number of “Wild Card”entries into the Finals Concert. The judges also commented that the performances in the evening were a real improvement on the heats; the contestants had obviously put into practice some of the suggestions made in the afternoon. They were very impressed by the high standard of the performances.
