Heralding from a sold-out final concert from 2017, Friends of Music Series return in 2018 with a stellar lineup of top Melbourne emerging musicians, boasting from a variety of styles ranging from classical, folk to jazz and contemporary performances.
What better way to spend Mother's Day with the gift of music, showcasing folk sensations The Apparitions!
About the Artists
“The Apparitions” play acoustic folk music with Celtic and American influences. Caitlin Sullivan (vocals, ukulele,autoharp), Michael kilpatrick (guitars, mandolin), Gary Sullivan (whistles, harmonica and vocals) and Jenny Newcombe (fiddle, piano, guitar and vocals) weave their favourite songs and dance tunes together with a nuanced feeling for this genre. Music from Ireland, Scotland, Louisiana and Appalachia paints a picture of the love, longing, loss and joy which is the experience of people leaving their homelands in search of adventure. Caitlin’s evocative and powerful vocals are expertly and intricately accompanied by Michael, Gary and Jenny with varied and layered textures. Their energetic instrumental dance tunes bring excitement and joy to their performances and their sheer pleasure in playing together is infectious.
About the 2018 FOMS
Concerts at St. George's proudly presents the 2018 FOMS, showcasing top Melbourne emerging musicians!
Concerts at St. George's is voluntarily managed by a team of musicians with the vision to establish St. George’s Anglican Church in Travancore as a new music performance venue in Melbourne’s inner northwest. Aligned with this vision is the annual Friends of Music Series (FOMS), showcasing top Melbourne emerging musicians.
Your support for the local arts scene will be tremendously appreciated, with all proceeds from the 2017 FOMS concerts directly contributing to further enhancing the performance space at St. George's. The proceeds will also speak volumes for continuing the fundraising spirit for the Moonee Valley City community, and for continuing the vision for quality, affordable concert-going experiences for the local communities.
