St John's Uniting Church, Buckley St
Winter Music in the Valley will commence with Afternoon Jazz at St John’s Uniting Church in Essendon, will be performed by the Melbourne Octet.
The Melbourne Octet is made up of professional voices; regular soloists or chorus in opera, oratorio or jazz, all with a love for eight-part harmony.
Much of the repertoire in this programme was written in a period of history that saw recovery from a war and a devastating pandemic followed by the rule of several dictators across the world, persecution of various groups, and unrest in international relations.
Nearly a century later, the world situation looks disturbingly similar.
The light-hearted, slightly naughty songs of this period are an excellent distraction for the times we are now in.
