Music for Pleasure series to bring classical, jazz, contemporary, opera and chamber music to Cottesloe

CHAMBER musicians Quintet Varsovie start the Music for Pleasure concert series at the Cottesloe Civic Centre, Broome Street on July 3

The annual event features classical, jazz, contemporary, opera and chamber music for the next two months.

Quintet Varsovie will perform chamber music from the Romantic era, including pieces by Schumann, Bruch and Dvorak, and 21-year-old Charlie-Moon Meader, who combines R’n’B and jazz, will sing on August 14.

“Music for Pleasure is a wonderful way to enjoy a great variety of music in a setting perfectly suited to it, right here in Cottesloe,” Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

“With his inspiration coming from Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, this is a concert you won’t want to miss.”

Chimera Ensemble play on July 10, jazz outfit Avenue 3 July 17, swing-jazz Rush Hour Big Band July 24, and the Tuxedo Junction vocal ensemble July 31.

The concerts continue with the Allegri Chamber Orchestra on August 7, Charlie Moon Meader August 14, Jay Weston August 21 and The Real Sing August 28.

Each concert is from 3pm-5pm, and afternoon teas are included with bookings which can be made at www.cottesloe.wa.gov.au.
