Night of fine food, music

A ROMANTIC night of music is being held at Janet’s Art in Maryborough tomorrow with local music teacher Judith Massey and two of her students entertaining guests.

Massey Strings will feature Ms Massey on the violin and St Mary’s College students Alanna Lehtonen (Year 10) on the violin and Samantha McGinley (Year 8) on the cello.

Ms Massey has been playing the violin for 30 years and used to be with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

She now teaches string music at St Mary’s and privately.

The trio will be performing chamber music in the Janet’s Art courtyard from 6pm to 8pm tomorrow. The night will also be one for the taste buds with a mix of sweet and savoury food including heart-shaped chocolate cakes.

Tickets cost $15 and reservations are essential on 4123 1117.

It is the first time the venue has hosted a musical soiree and Janet Reville is enthusiastic about introducing monthly night-time musical events.

“We have a beautiful courtyard and there is a lot of talent here in Maryborough and maybe we can use the space as somewhere to showcase it.”

Ms Reville is already planning a night of entertainment with Canberra-born classical guitarist Rupert Boyd in November.
