THE Serenata Concerts' winter season is under way with the first performances booked for this Sunday.

Musicians have already put their names forward for the concerts held across the coming months.

Serenata provides the opportunity for instrumentalists and singers from the community to perform for small audiences at the series of Sunday afternoon concerts.

This Sunday, November 24, the programme features Peebles flautist, Kimberley Archibald, playing a selection of pieces by C.P.E. Bach, Piazzola, Telemann and Prokofiev accompanied by Caroline Adam on piano.

In upcoming concerts, audiences will be treated to clarinet and violin solos, a clarinet quartet and a string quartet, young recorder players, solo vocalists, a special choir and a jazz group.

And the programme isn't even filled yet. Signing up to join the concerts is open musicians of all ages, of all abilities and can perform from a variety of genres - from classical to jazz. Soloists and groups are welcome to play. Play or sing solo or get a group together.

And it's vital that these talented musicians have an audience. Music fans of any genre should come along.

The Serenata Concerts always make for a fun afternoon and there may even be a delightful surprise in store for guests.

Audience members can then end their Sunday afternoon with an afternoon tea from the Eastgate Café.

The Serenata Concerts are on Sunday afternoons at 2.30pm at the Eastgate Theatre right up to the end of March.

Guests can enjoy the concerts on November 24, December 22, February 2, March 1, and March 29.

Entry to the concerts is by donation on the door.
