Commemorative Concerto Concert – by The Brissenden Foundation
|Date||Sunday 2nd August, 2015|
|Venue||The Concourse Chatswood|
|Address||409 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood|
|Notes||This event is not organised by Suzuki Music|
This is the third year the concert has been presented with an orchestra made up of former students, many of whom are now professional players.
The orchestra will be conducted by Dr. Nicholas Milton, himself a Suzuki graduate, who grew up in Sydney, and is now a conductor of international repute based in Germany. His charm, personality and bonhomie ensures that everyone will thoroughly enjoy the concert.
The concert soloists include four outstanding young students, plus the brilliant cellist, Kenichi Mizushima of the Opera and Ballet Orchestra and violinist, Aiko Goto of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. We are especially privileged to have Aiko Goto join us, as she was not only a student of Dr Suzuki, but also his great niece, who went on to a brilliant career in the USA before coming to Australia to join the ACO.
