The Winter Solstice Festival, hosted jointly over the weekend of June 17 – 19 by the Peninsula Music Society, at The Peninsula Community Theatre, and the Peninsula Chamber Musicians, at St Peter’s Church, saw eager audiences warmed by superb musical production.

On the Friday evening, Karin Schaupp, guitar, and Ulberto Clerici, cello, were enchanting, coaxing from their instruments absorbing interpretations of brilliant compositions, transporting the listener from Brazil to Argentina and Spain.

Sara Macliver, soprano, easily captured her audience on the Saturday night, her exquisite and richly resonant voice bringing sheer delight to Calvin Bowman’s settings of Friedrich Hölderlin.  She was sensitively led by the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, which, having earlier triumphed with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, later supported Anne-Marie Johnson’s Bach. This young violinist, her technical virtuosity amazing and her touch impressive, brought the room to a tumultuous ovation.

Sunday afternoon saw the truly dynamic Kristian Chong, virtuoso pianist, enthral a full house with showmanship matched to consummate skill. Wearing great talent lightly, Kristian moved passionately and sensitively through his repertoire.

The icing on the cake came late Sunday afternoon, with the Peninsula Chamber Musicians showcasing Mozart, Copland and Grieg, in a powerful Festival finale of great sensitivity, played to a packed church.
