Remembering War Dogs - An Exhibition of paintings by Anne Johnson
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
to Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Anne Johnson
Anne’s inspiration for this exhibition ‘Remembering War Dog’ has been her love of the Airedale breed, more specifically her own Airedales Skipton, Toby and Ruffy.

Through the creation of this exhibition, Anne has been committed to highlighting the various roles dogs have played historically in war in response to changing war tactics, and paying a tribute to the war dogs that have served so heroically.

Brought to you by the Portland RSL Sub Branch and Glenelg Libraries

Beyond Baroque
Beyond Baroque

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra
Music
From an unrivalled musical pedigree and education, JS Bach’s sons blazed a revolutionary path. With Telemann and others, they were the avant-garde forging a new style. Combining awe-inspiring virtuosity, deep feeling, and brilliant colours, this is the music that inspired the Classical era. Rarely heard today, these are some of the most exciting and inventive compositions for chamber orchestra. Christopher Moore is one of Australia’s most recognised chamber musicians, a viola superstar whose verve and mastery of the instrument has seen him perform for audiences all over the world. He performs the great Telemann viola concerto, often thought to be the first solo concerto for the instrument, and a meticulous reconstruction of a lost viola concerto from JS Bach’s own transcriptions.

Performers: Christopher Moore, viola;
William Hennessy, director
Duration: 2hrs
including interval

Hit Productions – Shirley Valentine
Hit PRodHIT PRODUCTIONS’ SHIRLEY VALENTINE
By Willy Russell

Comedy / Drama
Shirley Valentine, starring Mandi Lodge (Just the Ticket and Always...Patsy Cline) is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42-year-old Liverpool mother whose self esteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general. When her best friend wins a Greek vacation for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life.
With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mould in which she was cast by society.
