Ironwood Chamber Ensemble play in Robertson

Last week the "Ironwood Chamber Ensemble" performed in Robertson, to an appreciative audience of members of the Robertson Village Music Society.

As may be understood from their website (linked above) this group has a flexible membership and plays a selection of chamber music pieces appropriate to the artists and their favourite instruments.
Five members of the Ensemble came to Robertson on Wednesday. They were, from left to right, (as shown in the image above)
Rachael Beesley violin
Lisa Stewart violin
Daniel Yeadon cello (with back to camera)
Nicole Forsyth viola
Valmai Coggins viola

Naturally, their choice of repertoire for this particular membership of the Ensemble was works for Viola, Violin and Cello. The piece in which all five members of the Ensemble played together (above) was Mozart's Quintet in C minor (K 406).

Lisa and Nicole played Mozart's Duet for Violin and Viola in B (K 424)Nicole and Valmai played Carl Stamitz's Duo for two violas, No 5 in D majorHere is Valmai, pictured in reflective contemplation during the Stamitz piece.The Robertson Village Music Society has as its aim "Bringing fine music and song to the Southern Highlands". Although the society is new, it is now into its second year's schedule of performances, I reported on their last Chamber Music concert, in November last year. Their next concert is scheduled for Wednesday 28 May 2008. The Society holds its performances in the new hall at the Christian Education Centre, Meryla Street, attached to St John's Anglican Church, Robertson.
