Hello to all our subscribers and our wonderful audience, we hope you are doing well in these difficult times. The members of Sirius Chamber Ensemble are all missing performing for you, we are sad to have had to cancel or postpone our concert plans during this time.
However, we do hope to be back in recital on Friday, 10th July, 1.10pm at St Stephen’s Church, Macquarie St Sydney. Our trio of Ian Sykes (clarinet), Clare Kahn (cello) and Claire Howard Race (piano) will be performing music by Nino Rota, Gerald Finzi and Gabriel Fauré. Of course, with the uncertainty around restrictions at this time, please check our social media or blog for updates closer to the time to see if this event will be able to go ahead.
In the meantime, with everyone starved for live music, we are undertaking the long-overdue task of uploading some of our performances to our YouTube page. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRlboqiS09hXmSbgQR2zxBQ
Our latest upload is from our August 2019 concert, featuring our Artistic Director Ian Sykes (clarinet) performing the Australian premiere of Albanian composer Kris Sopiqoti’s piece AlbPhonia. https://youtu.be/Ofn1E71nwTQ
Also available on our page are performances of music by Australian composers Margery Smith and Tony Wheeler, with more to come over the next few months.
We hope you stay safe and well, and look forward to seeing you at a concert sometime soon.
