The Musical Garden
Ben Dollman, violin
Anna Webb, viola
Kim Worley, cello
Sunday 27 August, 3–4 pm
Enjoy an afternoon of musical delights from three Lifeflow members celebrating the wonders of nature… Plants, flowers and the patterns of natural life have been the source of inspiration for many composers over the centuries.
In this program you’ll hear vibrant music from 17th century England, gems from Johann Sebastian Bach’s ‘Goldberg Variations’, some earthy folk tunes from around the world and a few newly composed pieces on Australian flora and fauna for good measure!
Join us at the Lifeflow Studio for a fun and light-hearted wander through musical fields of green and gold.
