Hoang will then climb the heights of Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini - the mere mention of Paganini ensures fireworks and a brilliant performance.

BONUS Insight - How to determine your true value
Guest Speaker: Leigh Powell, Business Strategist/Mentor 

Too often small businesses charge a price that represents the cost of their time only.

What is under-priced is the:

Value of your experience honed through years of experience
Value you unearth for your clients in their business

Learn how to recognise and demonstrate your true value and how to make it a natural part of your proposition

Our speaker Leigh Powell- 

Leigh Powell's background is in the banking and finance industry where he has worked with major banks and large corporations for over 40 years in various capacities. He has worked in strategy and risk and understands how to determine value . It is essentail to get your pricing right for business profitability. 

Leigh has also met with over 100 small businesses in the last 2 years and now have unique insight into what makes business owners and their businesses “tick”.

He knows that business professionals have vision, expertise and ambitious goals, even if they are just starting out. What they need is to ask themselves pertinent questions that help to explore the details and implications of their strategy and challenge so that they can identify and strengthen potential weaknesses in their business. 

Your Time Matters is dedicated to helping individuals, business owners, and corporations develop the networking skills and business knowledge they need to accelerate their growth and achieve their goals, making businesses bigger and better.

Named the “Father of Musick” by the King of England, William Lawes (1602-1645) stands as one of the most inventive English composers of the 17th century.

The two plucked and two bowed instruments together create a special soundscape, with each instrument having its own independent part in a delicately balanced texture.

Latitude 37 is an exciting baroque trio whose members were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th century music. The special combination of baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord opens up a wealth of repertoire that is rarely explored by other Australian ensembles.

Zelman Symphony Orchestra - Shostakovich 13 - Babi Yar

Zelman Symphony Orchestra - Shostakovich 13 - Babi Yar

Experience the delights of the Elena Kats-Chernin Flute Concerto and Shostakovich’s darkly evocative Symphony No.13, Babi Yar.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko's famous poem, Babi Yar, exposed the massacres by the Nazis of over 110,000 people at Babi Yar, near Kiev, during WWII. It denounced anti-Semitism and protested against the then Soviet Government's refusal to build a memorial. Dmitri Shostakovich set this poem to music in his 13th Symphony, Babi Yar, which will be performed by bass-baritone Adrian Tamburini accompanied by a large orchestra and a 200-voice male chorus. It will be the centrepiece of this concert commemorating the 75th anniversary of these horrendous events at Babi Yar.

The strongly emotive yet delightfully melodic Elena Kats-Chernin Flute Concerto, Night and Now, references Elena's early years in Soviet-era Russia. It was composed for leading Australian flautist Sally Walker, and premiered in Victoria by Zelman Symphony to great acclaim in 2015. Zelman Symphony is proud to be able to bring this beautiful work to the Hamer Hall stage.
