The Australian Ballet's Nijinsky

October 18 2016

Last night I took my granddaughter Zoe to The Australian Ballet's performance of Nijinsky for her birthday and it was honestly the most amazing ballet I have ever seen; talk about being blown away! It was just the most extraordinary performance and story; it takes my breath away just talking about it and to know that Zoe who turned 20 was just as carried away by it all, made the night even more special. It was truly a privilege to be there! -MB Read the rest...

An Exceptional Night

October 10 2016

Last night at St John’s Anglican Church on Hallifax Street in Adelaide I attended a fantastic concert by Tom Vincent, the son of a friend of mine. With his trio, they performed The Great American Song Book and what a musician he is, the performance truly took my breath away. Tom has recently been in New York recording with one of the Marsalis family, which just shows the calibre of the man and this trio. A short break was then followed by a performance from Lou Blackwell, an Adelaide woman who spent 10 years singing in Paris, who performed a French Cabaret, with again, an amazing group of musicians. Lou’s vocals paired with the piano, violin and bass and then the acoustics of the church, really was magnificent. Canapes by Cath Kerry, an amazing caterer, and a glass or two of wine, completed an exceptional night. -MB Read the rest...
