Trinity News : December 2012
SOA SOCIETY OF THE ARTS Evocative Japanese koto music, cool Cuban jazz and independent short films from around the world have featured in Society of the Arts events over the last few months. At the end of July, the Satsuki Odamura Koto Ensemble gave a spellbinding recital in Delmar Gallery. It was a spectacular set-up in the gallery, with ten beautiful koto filling the stage. The programme ranged from seventeenth century Kyoto court music performed in kimono to captivating contemporary compositions. In an exciting addition to our annual programme of exhibitions and concerts, we partnered with the Sydney Underground Film Festival and curated an evening film screening at Delmar Gallery in November. Year 11 film students and gallery visitors had a rare chance to see experimental and creative short documentaries, animation and drama by filmmakers around the globe. Delmar Gallery was transformed very successfully from bright exhibition space to darkened cinema, and we hope to include this in our regular calendar of events. The last concert of the year took us to Cuba, with jazz pianist Marialy Pacheco and her trio performing in the Orchestra Room. Ms Pacheco is a rising star in international jazz circles, recently taking out a coveted award at the Montreux Jazz Festival. It was a rare treat to hear her interpretations of Cuban standards she learnt growing up in Havana, and their influence on her original compositions.
