12 p.m., Wednesday June 16 I The Concourse Concert Hall
Internationally renowned flautist Jane Rutter presents the third Live at Lunch concert on June 16 – with a program that celebrates music from all over the world, Bach, Bolero and a Beautiful World.
Mention the word flute to any Australian, and Jane Rutter’s name immediately springs to mind. Jane is a classical music pioneer known for her warmth on stage, she brilliantly transmits passion, sparkling technique and elegant expression through her magnificent flute playing.
Hosted by Willoughby City Council, 2021 sees the popular lunchtime series return with seven fabulous concerts throughout the year.
Third Culture’s music is a cultural treasure vessel, a synthesis of musical style, blending classical chamber music, original Australian compositions and new settings of traditional music from all corners of the globe.
“Using the transformative powers of music to unify and inspire, the group joyfully merges classical, jazz and folk music from around the world,” said Jane.
Indian Bollywood meets classical chamber music, sensual rhythmic Arabic dances, Chinese “redgrass” (think bluegrass with an oriental flavor), as well as new interpretations of Ravel’s Bolero, Bach and Vivaldi. The public will be delighted with this unique musical journey around the world.
With a combination of meditative and rhythmic music, the concert features works for classical and world flutes, guitar, Chinese banjo (sanxian), cello, double bass, tabla and vibraphone.
“I like the mix of talent we have for our June concert. There is nothing like live music from all over the world to bring joy and unify the community, ”said Jane.
“I like to make my audience feel included. Live at Lunch is all about social inclusion and good music. Lunch with the audience after the show is simply delicious.
Members of the public can join Jane and the performers for lunch after the concert.
