St George's College Autumn Series: The Story of Babar

Join us for an evening of music and storytelling amongst the intimate setting of the College's historic fairy tale like Dining Hall. Celebrated Perth pianist Anna Sleptsova and her talented young colleague Noelle Zhao unite with renowned narrator Julia Moody to bring to life the Story of Babar, the beloved elephant as set to music by Poulenc.

The evening also welcomes cellist Louise McKay (Brahms 114, 2015) back to the College as she pairs with Anna for the great Chopin Sonata for Cello and Piano in what promises to be a moving evening!

In addition to the Poulenc and Chopin, the evening will feature works by Piazzola, Rachmaninov and Skoryk including pianists Aidan Boase (Butterfly Lovers, Christmas in the Quad 2015) and Ryan Davies (Appalachian Spring, 2013) who, in addition to Noelle, will be the first trio to perform a work for 6 hands on the Fazioli!

(There will be some cushions at the front for the little ones as well!)
