(1) NEXT EVENT: Sunday 7 March, 2.00pm – ‘Wagner at 40′
Concert with soprano Laura Scandizzo and pianist Bradley Gilchrist at Mosman Art Gallery
It is hard to believe that this concert is our first in over a year! This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to gather together again in person, in the Wagner Society’s long tradition of wonderful concerts in good company with good wine, and catching up with like-minded friends. And it is also an opportunity, in these challenging times, to show our support for music, performances and Wagner, and for artists to be able to perform to a live audience. We do hope that you are as excited as we are about this event, and encourage as many people to attend as possible. Particularly as it is part of the Society’s 40th birthday.
Members – $40
Non-Members – $45
Full-time students – $20
Members of the public are welcome!
Attendance: To expedite queueing in these times of Covid-19 restrictions, those planning to attend are encouraged to pay beforehand. Please let us know if you wish to attend by replying to this email and an e-invoice will be forwarded to you, which will also list alternative payment options.
