Real talent blows in to town

COORAN has been included in the Pacific Chamber Players' concert series in 2013.

The performance will be on Saturday, March 2 at 2pm at the Cooran Arts Memorial Hall in King St.

Guest artist will be French horn player Armin Terzer, who has performed with the Pacific Chamber Players on two previous occasions.

Armin will be performing in the Stamitz Wind Quartet in Eb, op. 8 no. 2; the Brahms Horn Trio in Eb, op.40; Beethoven Wind Quintet op.16. He will be joined by wind players Ronald Webb (Oboe), Graham Evans (clarinet) and Neil Heymink (bassoon), Julie-Anne O'Reilly (violin) and Janet Brewer (piano).

Also on the program will be Dance for a Gnome written by Australian composer Franz Holford and played by Ronald Webb and Neil Heymink.

Armin studied horn in Italy and at the Royal College of Music in London with Pip Eastop, after which he was offered principal positions in China's Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, Lanzhou Symphony Orchestra and Beijing Symphony Orchestra.

While in China he also performed with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, toured Europe and Africa with GSO and recorded for EMI with BSO.

In 2007 Armin moved to Brisbane to pursue a Master of Music Studies degree at the Queensland Conservatorium with Peter Luff. He now has a Doctor of Musical Arts degree and regularly plays with the Queensland Opera Orchestra, The QSO and Queensland Pops Orchestra. He also plays in and organises a Chamber Brass Ensemble, a professional brass quintet based at the Conservatorium. In addition to this busy schedule Armin is studying for a Mathematics and Economics degree at the London School of Economics.

This "wind" concert program will not only be fun but first class entertainment, as usual, from this Sunshine Coast chamber music ensemble which has been performing on the Sunshine Coast for more than 10 years.

Tickets will be available from the door - $25, concessions $20, groups of eight $15 each, students 15 years and under $5. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to cancer research, remembering one of the founders, flautist Debra Tetley who died from cancer.

Refreshments will be served at the end of the concert and more details can be obtained by ringing 5446 8128 or at pacificchamberplayers.com.
