Façade at Pah Homestead

31 Jul 2022
6pm Sunday 31 July
A Farewell Concert for Leo Jaffrey
Event type: 
General admission $40 / Concession $25
Pah Homestead
72 Hillsborough Road, Hillsborough, Auckland, 1042


Façade at Pah Homestead will be an exciting performance of Façade Entertainments. In addition to the witty and comical, Façade has some captivatingly tranquil moments, all while exploring the sounds of Edith Sitwell's linguistic experiments. The exuberant and nonsensical outbursts of Facade will be followed by Ravel's unparalleled mastery of timbre. A complex and sensitive work, Ma mère L'Oye is like a set of musical watercolours, each describing a single image from a children's tale. This concert is a fundraiser for Leo Jaffrey, before he travels overseas to begin a Masters in Orchestral Conducting at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
