Arioso Chamber Ensemble will be performing a concert of Love and Celebrations at the Caloundra uniting Church. As part of the 4MBS Festival of Classics the ladies have been lured by the musically intelligent City of Caloundra to bring their unique sound and music.

Their programme will traverse the rocky terrain of love with Monteverdi’s alluring “Sì dolce è ‘l tormento” and “Lamento della Ninfa”, Caccini’s “Amarilli, mia bella” and JS Bach’s “Bist du bei mir” and “Beriete dir, Jesu”. The programme will also celebrate Couperin’s 350th birthday with his Third Concert Royaux in A, and Barbella’s 300th birthday with his violin sonata in Bb, just to name a couple.

Arioso features Hungarian soprano Judit Molnár and baroque instrumentalists Margaret Caley (violin), Belinda Manwaring (cello) and Janet Brewer (harpsichord). The ensemble has regularly performed at music festivals including Sandgate’s “Music by the Sea”, the Caloundra Fringe and New England Bach Festivals. Individually each artist has performed internationally.

Janet is a long-term performer on the Sunshine Coast. She is Artistic Director of Pacific Chamber Players who are often seen at Caloundra Uniting Church. Most recently she was pianist for “A Chorus Line” at the Caloundra Events Centre. It will surely be an afternoon to delight and remember.
