Galston Concerts Supports Children’s Hospital Charity

On Sunday 17 March The Galston Concerts begins their 2024 line-up with a charity fund-raiser concert I Dream a World.

Classical pianist Tonya Lemoh, an Australian resident born in Sierra Leone, will play the Galston Uniting Church grand piano to launch her new ABC Classic CD of popular music inspired by children – Schumann’s Scenes from Childhood, Elena Kats Chernin’s Piano Village including Eliza’s Aria and much more.

The chance choice of St Patrick’s Day allows for some bonus Irish music – folk-style Percy Grainger and magical John Field.

The concert supports a very worthy cause: all proceeds are destined for the Children’s Hospital in Bo, Sierra Leone, established by Tonya’s late father, a leading Sierra-Leonean paediatrician who studied medicine in Sydney and raised his family in Australia. 

A 2 pm start at Galston Uniting, a concert without interval till 3ish before afternoon tea in the foyer and an opportunity to purchase copies of the CD to further support the fund-raising cause – music and medicine across continents and cultures.

Advanced booking will assist catering plans so please search Galston Dream on or phone Robert Harris on 0428 248 348.
