President’s Report

The Barwon Heads Fine Music Society is proud to record another wonderful year of concerts and is pleased to report that our organization is recognised with appreciative comments from a broad area of the Greater Geelong region and beyond, which makes the efforts of our committee members and supporters very worthwhile!  The fact that professional musicians approach us for presenting their program is very encouraging!

We aim to bring a wide range of high quality music events and this year we presented many interesting and outstanding performances.

Amongst these were” Avi, Kerrie and Friends” which proved to be a great variety of talent; 

We really enjoyed supporting young talented and hard-working music students from The Geelong College and Christian College, and later the Wind Chamber Ensemble from The Geelong College; and Selmo and Rita, a young and talented Portuguese duo couple.

The ANZAC Eve concert with Geoffrey Graham, a wonderful orator and entertainer, gave us vivid insights through his two-hour journey of the extraordinary events of a hundred years ago.

The Chorale, led by Natale, performed for the Seniors’ Concert with “Let’s All Sing” (in aid of LIFE LINE) and was very popular and great fun! That concert is part of the Geelong Seniors’ Festival who provide an Annual Grant to support this event.

Another beautiful solo performance was an International Journey from Sonoka Miyake from her extensive piano repertoire including Debussy from France, Beethoven from Germany and Ginastera from Argentina.

We had a couple of extra  events to raise our profile with the local community; an evening Fund-Raiser outside the Hall and a lovely Classical Guitarist performing in the “ John Green’s Out-Door Space” and of course, sang with the Combined Churches Carol Service.

We are very grateful for the support of The Bendigo Bank and Peter Molloy from RD Edgar, along with other businesses in the village who support our group.

As with all voluntary organisations, we are always looking to source funds to provide these special events!

And, finally, I would like to thank all our hard-working committee members for all their innovative ideas and conscientious support throughout the year!
