Orange Regional Conservatorium | Celebrate Local Talent with Food, Wine and Fine Classical Music

The Orange Regional Conservatorium (ORC) is proud to present An Evening in the Village, a performance of fine classical chamber music to relax listeners into the weekend, accompanied by wine and canapes, Friday 9th November 6pm.
Showcasing the professional performing staff of the conservatorium, the concert will display the depth of talent and experience we have in Orange. Musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences will join together to perform works by some of history’s greatest composers.
Featured in this concert will be David Shaw (piano/flute), Andrew Callaghan (cello), Lujia Zhang (piano/voice), Samantha Bartholomeusz (voice), and Laith Ismail (oboe). These musicians and teachers come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and experiences, which is part of what makes these performances special. Separately they have studied and performed across the world and now make Orange their home. They have chosen a relaxing selection of works by the likes of Claude Debussy, Arvo Pärt, George Frideric Handel and Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, who’s piece An Evening in the Village inspired the theme.
“Putting together concerts such as this is always a pleasure” said David Shaw, “we are so lucky to have this wealth of talent and experience in our teachers, which makes choosing pieces for us to perform together always fun.”
“We come from such a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures and experiences that the sound we produce is always fresh and interesting. It’s also a critical part of music education for our students, seeing professional performances, especially in person, can be such an inspiring and motivating experience.”
“We would encourage all music lovers to come along, enjoy a glass of wine with us and soak up the music.”
The evening begins at 6:00pm with wine and canapés served before the performance begins at 6:30pm. Tickets are available through ORC Admin or
