Fine music with five players

By John Lewis

The dance music of favourite classical composers will be performed at Shepparton's Chapel on Maude tomorrow afternoon.

The Oxalis Wind Quintet will play music from composers such as Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Strauss during an afternoon of toe-tapping tunes for classical music lovers.

The Oxalis Wind Quintet was formed in 2014 and includes players from across Victoria including Shepparton and Broadford.

Goulburn Valley Concert Orchestra leader Wendy Oakes said the name Oxalis came from the five petals of the plant.

The quintet is made up of Sandy Sexton - flute, Eric Anderson - oboe, Marla Swift - clarinet, Steven Sargant - horn and Julie Holmes - bassoon.

Sunday's program will include Romanian dances by Bartok, dances from Tchaikovsky's Nutracker and Debussy's Golliwog's Cakewalk.

Mrs Oakes said tomorrow's concert would be a fundraiser for the newly-developed music hub at Chapel on Maude - the former Wesley Church at 160 Maude St, Shepparton.

The performance is from 2pm to 4pm with tickets at $10 available at the door.
