Dorothy Ker (NZ): Onaia
Schubert (AUSTRIA): Piano Trio in E Flat major, op. 100

Soar prepares us for new heights and perspectives. Weaving through changing tapestries, you’ll find yourself adrift in daydreams (John Ireland) where life’s complexity is seemingly simplified (Anthony Ritchie), primordial soundscapes pacify (Dorothy Ker), and naivety is blissfully deliberate like a game of hide and seek (Franz Schubert). With guest violinist Manu Berkeljon. 

Tickets $40 Adults / $20 Students & CGW Friends
