Classical finale sees out concerts for the year

The final Lunchtime Concert for 2020 will feature the talents of staff, students and alumni in a performance on Monday 16 November.

A longstanding fixture of the Flinders University Lunchtime Concerts, the Flinders University Chamber Ensemble (FUCE) has been playing for around 20 years and comprises Flinders staff, students, alumni and friends who are enthusiastic amateur musicians.

Depending on members’ availability, they have performed as a chamber group through to a small orchestra. Their repertoire features baroque and classical items and occasionally more modern works.

This year’s FUCE lunchtime concert will include Beethoven’s Sechs Landlerische Tanze in acknowledgement of the 250th anniversary of his birth.

Concert Program

Stamitz – Orchestra Trio Op1 No 5 in Bb

Vivaldi – Chamber Concerto in G minor RV107

Fux – Ouverture in G minor K355

Haydn – Divertimento in G Hob XIV13

Beethoven – Sechs Landlerische Tanze

In a departure from the concert’s usual Wednesday schedule, this concert will be held on Monday 16 November at 1:00pm (in the Oasis building, Bedford Park). It will also be livestreamed and available to view on demand later.
