Raves for “THE AUSTRALIAN TENORS IN CONCERT!” – 16 October 2017

“…Thank you for another truly wonderful concert today. The selection and performance from the Tenors was lovely and what an amazing voice Emilie Lemasson has. Your accompaniment along with the orchestra made for a delightful performance. The concerts you produce not only promote live music but give so much pleasure to so many older people. Can’t wait for the concerts planned for 2018…” – Helen C

“…Today’s concert with a fabulous soprano and five Australian Tenors supported by Bernard and his band was a standout and beyond all expectation! The concert was so enjoyable we were still singing the tunes on our bus trip home – a polished professional performance by all – many many thanks…” – Cathryn B

“…Thank you for another wonderful concert on Monday. My second concert visit and I enjoyed every minute. I was seated among a number of “first-timers” and they were enthusiastically looking forward to returning in 2018. I had a fantastic day and congratulations to you all for providing so many people with such enjoyment…” – Jennifer H

“…Wow – loved it. Great singing, great orchestra and of course the piano player was wonderful!…” – Cheryl R

“…Thank you, thank you. What a truly fabulous concert today. What a show to finish off 2017. We all enjoyed it very much. You bring so much happiness to a lot of Seniors. What would the world be like without music? Once again, many thanks…” – Pam F


“I Love A Piano – Encore”

WHEN: Monday 10 July 2017
Concerts at 11 AM and 2 PM
WHERE: Sydney Town Hall
483 George Street, Sydney
ot on the heels of his acclaimed 2016 performance, concert-pianist and Good Old Days Concerts Producer BERNARD WALZ returns with The Good Old Days Concerts Orchestra and special guest, violin virtuoso, MARIA LINDSAY, to dazzle you once more with a new programme – “I Love A Piano – Encore”! Add in a “Mystery Special Guest” with the voice of an Angel(!) and you are in for a musical treat!

Bernard is a seven-time “Instrumental Performer Of The Year” and has travelled the globe for over 25 years sharing his dynamic music with audiences from Royal Festival Hall in London to The Village Vanguard in New York and the principal concert Halls of Australia, including Sydney Opera House, Hamer Hall in Melbourne, and Festival Theatre in Adelaide. Under the mentorship of the late Maestro Tommy Tycho, AM MBE, Bernard’s career has grown to include conducting, orchestrating and arranging, and musical directing for the cream of Australian performers, including David Hobson, Marina Prior and Mark Vincent. Bernard’s music crosses the boundaries between classical and popular genres and his interpretations of Ragtime and the music of Gershwin are also widely applauded. Be prepared for brilliant musicianship, technical prowess and a whole lot of fun!

Virtuoso violinist, Maria Lindsay, string leader of The Good Old Days Concerts Orchestra, and founder of The Lurline Chamber Orchestra has thrilled the Good Old Days Concerts audiences with her brief solo appearances in previous concerts – and so we are delighted to feature Maria specially in this concert. The late Maestro Tommy Tycho composed his Violin Concerto for Maria – few greater tributes to her beautiful musicianship could be paid.

Don’t miss “I Love A Piano – Encore!” – a new programme of musical delights!
