Orchestra in concert

U3A Hawthorn orchestra in concert
St John's Church, Camberwell

The Orchestra of U3A Hawthorn presented "The Great Outdoors" in its concert on 10 May at St John's Church, Camberwell. Violinist Matthew Rigby featured in two works; The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams and The Four Seasons by Vivaldi. The concert also featured Dr David Bennett as narrator. There were some 200 people in the audience who had braved the rain and cool weather. Congratulations to conductor Gyula Cseszkó for his preparation and presentation of the orchestra.

Mt Macedon excursion

Autumn colours at Mt Macedon

A blaze of autumn colour greeted the excursioners who visited Mt Macedon recently. There was autumn colour evident also at the local vineyard they visited with vines turning yellow and golden. Apparently the wine was rather delightful as well! Thanks to Joan Harding and her team for organising the outing and sharing the photo with us.
