Feast of songs

Feast of songs

Benalla Art Gallery held its first chamber music concert for the year with a feast of songs, modern and classical.

The trio Songmakers, consisting of Merlyn Quaife, Nicholas Dinopoulos and Andrea Katz on the gallery piano transported the audience with their versions of some modern popular classics.

The band played Walzing Matilda and Simon and Garfunkle’s Sounds of Silence.

Beautifully arranged, these songs have proved to be just as moving in the classical repertoire as they are as folk songs.

There was also an Anzac tribute.

On Saturday, May 19, the Benalla Art Gallery will welcome Slava and Sharon Grigoryan, both of whom have toured nationally and internationally.

Tickets are available at the art gallery.
