This is a program that will have something for everyone, and a fun afternoon is guaranteed!.  Sunday, 4 March, 2pm

Mostly Chopin: Hoang Pham, one of Melbourne’s leading pianists, has performed widely as a soloist and with ensembles throughout Australia and internationally. On this occasion, his second appearance at Arden Crescent, he will play a variety of Chopin works, including a selection from his nocturnes, mazurkas, études and waltzes, along with pieces by Beethoven and Schubert.   Sunday, 8 April, 2pm

Duets of Delight: Three highly talented ladies – pianist Irina Cherkasski, soprano Rebecca Rashleigh and mezzo-soprano Alison Lemoh – will showcase the wealth and beauty of classical female duets, ranging from a Baroque setting of ‘Ave Maria’ to Astor Piazzola, to Irving Berlin. These vocal items will be complemented by piano solos. Sunday, 27 May, 2pm

Rising Stars – a  year on: By popular request, four talented younger musicians and singers return to the stage at Arden Crescent. Charlotte Miles, cellist, has won over 100 competition prizes. William Hardy plays several different recorders, also flute & tenor saxophone. Amanda Middleditch (soprano) and Chloe Harris (mezzo soprano) will team up as a duo as well as singing a variety of solo items.  Sunday, 24 June, 2pm

Musical  Yum Cha: When Michael Lapina (tenor) and Kathryn Radcliffe (soprano) teamed up in 2017 to fill a gap in the Arden Crescent program they so delighted the audience that a return visit was most definitely called for. Look forward to a wonderful afternoon of melody from these most engaging and entertaining singers, accompanied by Joseph Beckett on the piano.  Sunday, 5 August, 2pm

Violin, Cello and Piano: Violinist Ji Won Kim returns to Rosanna, together with the other members of Trio Bresciano: Michael Dahlenburg (cello) and Peter de Jager (piano). They will present a very varied program, the first half comprising a selection of well-known works for violin and piano, and the second half a Beethoven piano trio.  Sunday, 16 September, 2pm

Roy and Danielle – Two of the Best: Danielle Calder enjoys a varied performing career in opera, music theatre and on the concert platform – and tenor Roy Best, who came to national prominence in his televised performance as the Duke in Opera Australia’s Rigoletto (with over a million viewers), has continued to delight audiences ever since. Having provided first-class entertainment on separate previous visits to Rosanna, Roy and Danielle make a welcome return to Arden Crescent, this time as a singing duo.  Sunday, 28 October, 2pm
