Emanuel Ensemble presents
The healing power of music has been acknowledged by many throughout the ages. Music eases the pain of loss and bereavement, and soothes the heartache of separation from loved ones. Music lifts depression, and it can even help to alleviate painful symptoms of physical illness.
This autumn Healing Concert, during the reflective season of Lent, offers an opportunity for peaceful contemplation while immersed in a beautiful sound world. Flautist Emily Gunson has created a unique programme, featuring gentle and expressive French music composed by contemporaries of Debussy, including Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Gaubert and Caplet, presented by the Emanuel Ensemble with Zak Rowntree (violin) and Lisa Rowntree (piano), interspersed with exquisite French art songs performed by Elisa Wilson.
The venue is the elegant Church of the Resurrection, newly restored with an inspiring blend of traditional and modern architecture. With its light and airy interior and majestic gum trees out front, the Church provides the perfect ambience of serenity for this Healing Concert.
Come and share a special afternoon of gentle reflection, with the sweet and healing balm of beautiful music, followed by complimentary afternoon tea.
Limited seating, admission by pre-booked ticket only. No door sales.
