Sprites on the M.O.V.E to Shepparton
Team Social has spent two days in Shepparton recently, organising what we think will be a perfect weekend away in June.
Our adventure begins with a convoy. Our boys have hithered, thithered, got lost, driven up dead-end roads and enthusiastically explored the countryside to ensure we will all have a pleasant scenic drive from Beasley’s Nursery to Shepparton. Full details on the Social page.
Sunday 26th March 2023 – Jazz is back at Monsalvat
Featuring the Joe Chindamo Trio
The Club is organising an afternoon of Jazz at Montsalvat followed by a meal at House Of Salad in Eltham.
The concert will be in the Barn Gallery which features not only Montsalvat’s best piano, but a bar in the corner to keep you refreshed.
The music begins at 5:00pm but keep your eyes peeled as we may be getting a tour of Montsalvat prior to the concert.
After the concert, we will all head to the House of Salad where you can BYO wine or purchase it from the restaurant.
Joe Chindamo is a musical polyglot whose art defies classification. While forging an international career as a brilliant jazz pianist – producing 23 CDs, topping Japanese Jazz charts, winning awards (including being inducted into the Bell Award Hall of Fame) and touring the world with the genre’s leading figures, he was working as “first call” pianist on over 60 film soundtracks and performing and recording with a plethora of leading artists from the worlds of opera, jazz, theatre and pop.
Thanks to all who have booked for Montsalvat – the address is 7 Hillcrest Avenue, Eltham. Gates will open for us at 4:00pm – please drive in and park on the grounds. We will be greeted by Vincent Galante, a very experienced guide, who will take us through the grounds.
The bar will open at 4:30pm, with the concert starting at 5:00pm (there will be an interval). You may sip your drinks as you watch if you wish.
After the concert, we will drive to the House of Salad, 4/61 Beard Street, Eltham for our meal at 7:30pm.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
