9 February 2019
Proudly presented by CPAC and Issie & Mog
It gives us great pleasure to welcome Brian Castles-Onion, Opera conductor, pianist and famous Cessnock son; and Geraldine Turner, Musical Theatre star to launch our 2019 Season.
The evening will be peppered with music and song, wit and banter. Brian reflects on his formative years in Cessnock and his illustrious career in Opera. Geraldine sings and shares anecdotes from her years on stage, starring in shows like Anything Goes, Sweeney Todd, Company, Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, Guys and Dolls, and Call Me Madam.
Both are multi-award winners and true legends of the stage, and together they shine brightly. They will reflect and reminisce – regaling the audience with stories from both behind and in front of the lights – true stories, moving, poignant and hilarious!
THE MAESTRO & THE DIVA celebrates composers from Porter to Gershwin, Sondheim to Weill, Berlin to Lloyd Webber. Expect to laugh, be enthralled, surprised, even touched, by the talents and tales of these two celebrated Australian artists.
Your evening will begin with a selection of canapés and sparkling wine served in the foyer at 7:15pm, followed by these two dazzling performers at 8pm in the auditorium.
