The Concerteenies is presenting another performance on a Sunday for all the working parents and carers who cannot make a weekday recital with their little ones.
What’s even more exciting is that we are able to present Luke Carbon showcasing his music on three different woodwind instruments.
The Concerteenies is proud to present Luke Carbon, accomplished musician on the clarinet, saxophone and woodwinds, Sunday 12 April, 12pm noon, at The Victoria Hotel, Yarraville.
Luke is a professional wind player around Melbourne, performing in many orchestras and musical theatre pits. He’ll be playing three different instruments at this recital. This will be a really amazing opportunity to see the incredible versatility of a wind musician. And the little ones get to hear a whole bunch of different sounds.
Find out more about Luke’s music and career on Luke’s website.
He has appeared with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra Victoria as clarinetist, bass clarinetist, and saxophonist, and has performed as a doubler on professional productions of West Side Story, Nice Work If You Can Get It, The Sound of Music, PARIS – A Rock Odyssey, Brigadoon, and My Fair Lady.
He’s also a new music specialist: Luke has performed with Ensemble Offspring, Kupka’s Piano, Syzergy Ensemble, Rubiks Collective, ELISION, and the Mute Canary Project. He has appeared on multiple occasions at the Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, at which he was a featured lecture recitalist in 2016 for the Australian premiere of José Miguel Fernández’ Dispersion des trajectoires for baritone saxophone and electronics. He has also appeared at the Crossbows Festival, at which he performed Ross Edwards’ Ecstatic Dances for the composer. He was a member of Ensemble Offspring’s Hatched Academy in 2017, and toured a new chamber arrangement of Tan Dun’s Water Concerto for Musica Viva in Schools in 2018.
The Victoria Hotel has an amazing family space where the kids are safe and free to run around on the children’s equipment. We think this is a great environment for another one of our relaxed concerts, parents, carers and children alike.
As always, the little ones will be urged to listen but are able to do as they please. To play, to pay attention, or do both. While the carers have a moment to listen to beautiful music without worrying about shushing and letting their kids roam around in a safe space.
This concert is $20 per adult. Kids go FREE!
And with your purchase of a Concerteenies ticket, you will also get your children’s meal for free with every adult meal you buy.
So kids eat AND listen for FREE!
Please note that although the concert series is designed for 0 – 5s and their carers, we of course invite older kids to this event and under 16s go free. Just be mindful that the pub’s policies about the play equipment is that it is to be used by 0 -5s only.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
And if you can’t make it on the weekend, don’t forget that Luke Carbon is also playing a Friday concert at Kindred Studios on 12 April, 10.30am. Tickets and spaces are limited for both events.
