Barossa Baroque & Beyond : Organ Gallery Concert including 1877 Hill & Son Grand Organ
Speaking of organs……this year we have the inimitable Calvin Bowan at the wheel of the good ship, the SS ‘1887 Hill and Son Grand Organ.’ This magnificent beast was originally housed at the Adelaide Town Hall, and is now relocated to Tanunda where it has been painstakingly restored.
Calvin is a renowned organist and prolific composer specialising in artsong. He is a laureate of the Ned Rorem Award for Song Composition, the Diana Barnhart American Song Competition, and the English Poetry and Song Society Artsong Award. His song ‘Now Touch the Air Softly’, recorded by Emma Matthews with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra for Deutsche Grammophon/ABC Classics, has become one of the most popular Australian artsongs. Recent performances of his songs have taken place at the Musikverein, Vienna, and the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. Dr. Bowman is an exclusive Decca/UMA artist.
South Australian treasure Jane Doyle will yet again grace us with her presence and edifying emceeing.
