A cornerstone of the upcoming May concert of Simply Classical will be a Ständchen, the German word for serenade. An interesting piece by Schubert due to its configuration: a male choir, with a female soloist, is serenading the imagined beloved.

Violinist Helen Brereton (pictured with pianist, Irina Prodger) will play a powerful and dramatic Elegy by Tchaikovsky, and her accompanist will play the Moonlight Sonata.

Young Brisbane cellist, Daniel Shearer will also perform, with Alex Rainieri, a renowned concert pianist with international experience. Local student, George Allen, will play a saxophone repertoire to fit the theme.

Be serenaded on Sunday, May 26, 2pm, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Gympie. Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for children, with afternoon tea afterwards.
