Three Piece Suite presents Winter Serenade in June with tenor David Hamilton.

The string trio Three Piece Suite presents its next concert series entitled Winter Serenade this June. For these three performances the trio is excited to be joined by the talented tenor, David Hamilton. Fresh from recent concerts in Germany and Poland, David will be singing a selection of songs which will delight both young and old.

The series starts on the 1st of June in Blackheath, at the trio’s regular venue, the Presbyterian Church on Wentworth Street. Over the long weekend, they will travel to Moruya on the south coast, to appear once again at St. John’s Anglican Church, Page Street on Sunday the 8th. Finally, the ensemble will perform at the Annandale Neighbourhood Centre in Sydney’s inner West on June 22nd. All concerts commence at 3pm.

Winter Serenade will feature, amongst other delights,
- two of Henry Purcell's intricately constructed and stimulating Fantasias,
- Dohnanyi's sunny and optimistic Serenade in C Major opus 10 for string trio
- Schubert lieder from his "Winter Journey" song cycle and the famous "Serenade"
- Peter Warlock's rollicking drinking song, “Captain Stratton's Fancy”
- The traditional Scottish love song, ‘Ae Fond Kiss', with text by Robert Burns.

Winter Serenade is the group's first themed concert and David is its first guest performer.
Scottish born although resident in Sydney since 1979, he is a tenor with a distinguished career in the fields of opera, oratorio and concert repertoire. He has built a strong reputation and performed extensively to critical acclaim throughout Australia, New Zealand, Germany and the UK.
The trio's members, violinist Rachel Westwood, violist Valmai Coggins and ‘cellist Deborah Coogan have many years of performance experience in both orchestral and chamber settings. These include the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, and numerous chamber groups such as Salut! Baroque, Crisantemi string quartet, Halcyon, and the Michelangeli Ensemble.
In well received concerts in 2013, and the March series this year, audiences have enjoyed the diversity of the trio's repertoire. This has included everything from classical masterworks by Schubert, Haydn, Bach and Beethoven, to English country dances, ragtime, tangos, and thrilling and surprising gems by twentieth century composers such as Jacob, Berkeley, Kreisler and Kodály.
