Please read: We are proud to have a full program of seven concerts lined up for the 2021 Season of Song and will do our utmost best to keep it like that. However, please understand that details of each of the concerts can be subject to change even at short notice. Therefore, please keep an eye on announcements on this page or via email regarding changes in program or ticket availability. Subscribe to our email list on the contact page or make sure to check this page a few days before each concert to be aware of changes in performers, times, et cetera. If you have booked tickets for a performance, you will of course be notified of changes if you have provided a valid email address that you regularly check.

For the time being, virus-related physical-distancing restrictions require that the maximum audience capacity of the Wesley Music Room is reduced below 100%. Each concert is therefore planned to be 45 minutes long and to be given twice – once at 3pm and again at 4.15pm. There will be no interval within each concert and no after-concert gathering. Mingling of the two audiences will be strongly discouraged. The Music Room will be thoroughly cleaned between performances. Admission to each concert will be by prior booking, achieved very easily through www.trybooking.com. Bookings will need to be made specifically for either the first performance (3pm) or the second (4.15pm). Life members (entitled to free admission) must still book at no charge; there is provision for this on trybooking. Online booking links will be provided as each concert approaches; special booking arrangements will be offered to Members of Art Song Canberra not having access to online facilities.

For prices please see tickets.

Sunday 21st March at 3pm & 4.15pm
Wesley Music Centre, 20 National Circuit, Forrest

Sonia Anfiloff (soprano) and Kylie Loveland (piano)

The songs usually learnt in early studies were somehow missed by Sonia. While at ANU she had a more utility voice and never had the time to sing the wonderful repertoire from the usual suspects. Brahms’ ‘Von ewige Liebe’, Schumann’s ‘Widmung’, Strauss’ ‘Zueignung’. Typical composers with their most famous songs. Have they been overdone, or can you listen to them again and again?For the first time, Sonia is free to sing these much loved songs and is very much looking forward to it.
