Europa takes in 3 centuries and 4 countries in 5 varied works.
*Madrid in 1772, with Boccherini's colourful Trio in D major,
*Vienna in 1798 for Beethoven's dramatic and stormy Trio in Cminor and 1816, Schubert wrote his wistful, unfinished Trio in Bb major
*Terezin in 1944, the Nazi concentration camp where Czech composer Hans Krasa was interned. His Tanec (Dance) evokes the sounds and rhythms of trains, an eerie premonition of the one that would soon take him to his death in Auschwitz.
England in 1975, with Howard Blake's optimistic and pastoral Trio.

Eva's Vintage

After eleven years, Annandale's vintage fashion pioneer is moving out of the Colannade shopfront to a more agile style of retail. Eva Arrese who came to live in Annandale in 1970, has intermittently returned to Spain. Eva plans to take her love of vintage clothing and accessories in a new direction and explore pop-up stores, events and curated designer collections.

Eva is offering subscribers to her mailing list the chance to win the leopard print raincoat that has hung outside her shop on rainy days.

"I am giving the French Vintage rain coat away is because over the years so many ladies have wanted to buy it that it's only fair now to give it away so everyone has a chance." - Eva Arrese

To subscribe to Eva's mailing list, visit the shop front before 5 March or website http://www.evasvintage.com/

"Step 6 – announcement of names and boundaries of federal electoral divisions in New South Wales Updated: 14 January 2016": Sydney/Grayndler "a minor realignment with the proposed Division of Grayndler to The Crescent at Annandale involving no elector movement" - http://www.aec.gov.au/Electorates/Redistributions/2014/nsw/announcement.htm (viewed 2 Feb 2016)

Under the proposed redistribution of electorial divisions most of Annandale will move from the federal electorate of Sydney to the electorate of Grayndler. This includes the pocket between Booth Street, Mallet St, Parramatta Road and Johnston's creek formerly Camperdown and is now Annandale but not the pocket of Annandale, between Wigram Road, Johnston's Creek & Booth Street which remains in Sydney. More about new boundaries as of Oct 2015 at www.aec.gov.au/Electorates/Redistributions/2014/nsw/proposed-report/
