Concerts@Kent Town Present the Second Concert in Their 2018 Season

There was an excellent turn out for the first concert of the 2018 Concerts@KentTown in July and it was nice to see old and new friends enjoying the music and afternoon tea, when once again Concerts@Kent Town welcomed music lovers to the historic Wesley Church Kent Town and continues its tradition of presenting a series of outstanding concerts.

The second concert in this series of five takes place at 2pm on Wednesday 15 August, tickets $15 at door, includes afternoon tea.

The August concert features another rising musical talent, young Katie Marshall clarinettist, and welcomes back the acclaimed Andrew Georg playing the church's historic JE Dodd organ.

Katie Marshall began studying clarinet at the age of nine, and concluded her high school studies in 2013 as Music Captain of Cardijn College, receiving the school's Music Service Award in the same year.

She was the recipient of the Kathleen McPhee Music Scholarship at the end of 2013 to commence study at the Elder Conservatorium in 2014, studying under Peter Handsworth and then Mitch Berick, Principal Bass Clarinettist of the ASO.

She completed her Honours year in 2017, receiving First Class Honours, and has played in numerous ensembles around Adelaide, including the Adelaide Youth Orchestra (and recently, the newly formed AdYO Alumni Orchestra), the Elder Conservatorium Wind and Symphony Orchestras, and currently, the Adelaide Wind Orchestra.

On the 15 August Katie will perform compositions by Bozza, Mozart and Bergmüller.

Andrew Georg is a versatile South Australian musician whose career encompasses church music, opera, choral music and accompanying.

After completing studies at the Elder Conservatorium, Andrew was an Organ Scholar at St Peter's Cathedral and Pilgrim Church. He was Deputy Musical Director and Principal Accompanist of the Metropolitan Male Choir of South Australia from 2013 - 2017, and Chorus Master for State Opera's 2017 production of Die Fledermaus and has been associated with many acclaimed choirs in Adelaide.

He is a casual keyboards player with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra called on to play piano, celesta and synthesiser. In 2014 he won the Geoffrey Parsons' Award for accompanying, Australia's most prestigious award for the collaborative pianist.

Andrew works as a Repetiteur and Music Coordinator for the State Opera of SA and is organist and choir director at Christ Church North Adelaide as well as maintaining a busy freelance schedule.

Andrew will perform a selection of classical compositions for the organ.
