Music for an Indonesian Garden 


Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) School of Creative Arts and Humanities will once again present a special fundraising concert to assist with the building of the Indonesian Garden at the University’s Casuarina campus.

The gala concert, to be held on Saturday, 3 November, will present music for guitar, voice, flute and chamber music ensembles, featuring the talents of CDU staff and students including Stephan Bulmer, Chen Hui, Janusz Kwasny, Vivienne Tooms and Adrian Walter.

In addition, Darwin audiences will have the opportunity to hear new Centre for Youth Music (CYM) Manager and Clarinettist, Lisa Jennings, perform the rarely heard Mozart Quartet in Eb with violinist and DSO Concert Master, Wilf Lehmann, new CYM string teacher Anastasia Coroneo and CDU Cellist Rebecca Harris.

Pre-concert and interval entertainment will be provided by Darwin’s Indonesian community starting from 7.30pm.

Although the actual creation of the garden has not begun due to urgently needed funds, many exciting developments have occurred in 2007 with the completion of the Pendopo or Javanese Pavilion in Bali earlier this year and the donation of a huge Garuda Statue from Garuda Indonesia which will be completed early in 2008.

With the aim of being a cultural, educational and recreational resource, for use by both the University and the wider community once completed, the Charles Darwin Indonesian Garden will be located in the area behind the music building of the Casuarina campus.

Music for an Indonesian Garden will be held on Saturday, 3 November at 8.00pm in the CDU Theatre. This special concert marks the conclusion of the CDU Concert Series for 2007.

Money raised on the night will go towards the CDU Indonesian Garden project.

Concert Tickets available at the door. Adults $20 Concession $12 Children/U3A $10.  For further enquiries, ring 89466419.
