Record temperatures blow in cool music in the heart of Albury

Beating the heat by retreating into one of Albury’s most iconic buildings recently air-conditioned for a lunch time concert will benefit local performers and audiences from tomorrow.  St Matthew’s Albury has been a landmark for the last 160 years and now will be a venue for community music, escaping the heat in the middle of the day and showcasing some great local talent.  In the coming weeks school groups and organ piano and instrumental teachers and students will provide fortnightly lunchtime Tuesday recitals in  ‘Tunes on Tuesday’ series, commencing today 31st January.  Dr Allan Beavis kicks off the series with a recital on Albury’s most famous musical instrument, the Canadian pipe organ, placed in the church after the fire.  Dr Beavis is the teacher of some border students who are  making a name for themselves across the country on the king of the instruments.  In coming weeks James Flores, Tom Summerfield, Robin Riley and Bailey Cardwell will join the local schools in playing Mozart to Mary Poppins, from 1.10pm – 1.50pm, bring your lunch, fully air-conditioned and a retiring donation.  All Welcome.

The Venerable Peter MacLeod-Miller
Archdeacon of Albury and the Hume
