What a magical journey my mind, body and heart went on. The music was just mind-blowing and I felt every delicate sound, rhythm and drum throughout my body. I haven’t felt such a deep sense of relaxation for a long time. I was also able to tap into a space where my creativity was blocked. I’m feeling fresh, inspired and bursting to create which I have been doing all day yesterday and today"  12 places only. 1.30pm - 4.30pm, $50 North Fremantle

Pipe Organ Plus 2017 Concert 4 - Windows

WASO Principal Trumpet, Brent Grapes, joins Dominic Perissinotto for music inspired by the Chagall Windows in Israel, as well as delightful Baroque music by Jeremiah Clarke and Bach and beautiful works by Hovhannes and Liszt. Windows is a Programme of both discovery, as well as moments of comfort and relaxation, not unlike putting on a favourite old jumper. "We have used the four movements of Windows, written by Czech composer Petr Eben, as pillars for the concert, bookending the two halves. In each Eben paints a sound painting inspired by the corresponding Chagall windows. Balancing these descriptive pieces is a trumpet suite of music by Jeremiah Clarke, best known for the Prince of Denmark's March, and the most beautiful Prayer of St Gregory by Alan Hovhaness. Organ solos by Bach, Mozart and Liszt will round out the concert." Complimentary refreshments included.
