Young @ HEART – Notation
Monday, March 18 @ 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
‘Notation’ was formed two years ago as a harp and flute duo with Helen Punch on harp and Gail Chown on flute.
Both Helen and Gail have been playing their instruments for many years and as a duo they bring together two instruments that when played in unison, blends beautifully.
Helen was classically trained on piano and flute before changing to the harp over 20 years ago. Gail grew up in a musical family with singing around the piano, then learnt flute at school and has played ever since.
‘Notation’ performs around the South West with a focus on special events, weddings and celebratory occasions.
The harp and flute as a combination creates a magical musical experience for any occasion, or simply if you want to treat yourself to a musical soiree at home!
The Young@HEART music program is held at Margaret River HEART every Monday morning from 10am to 11am. The program does not run on public holidays or when there is another major event in the foyer.
The initiative was developed to safely encourage participation in the arts among older residents (over 60s) during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to high interest, the free performances have since been opened to people of all ages. Nonetheless, the senior demographic still makes up the majority of the audience.
Young@Heart is broadcast live on Radio Margaret River.
