Summer evening WIRES Fundraiser

Elisabeth Harnik (Austria) with Phoebe Bognár Freya Schack-Arnott Clayton Thomas Two sets of spontaneous music for Piano, flute, cello and double bass, Thrusday January 23, 2020 Johsnton St Jazz, 81 Johnston St Annandale

Johnston Street Jazz, 7.30 Thursday 23 January 2020
starring Elisabeth Harnik

Austrian pianist Elisabeth Harnik will perform her first every Australian concert, in the company of incredible flautist Phoebe Bognár, virtuosic cellist Freya Schack-Arnott, and amenable double bassist Clayton Thomas. Clayton has performed with Elisabeth in concerts in Berlin, Graz and Ulrichsburg, and now finally Australia.

It would be very nice to fill the room and make her feel welcome. It would also be nice to use this opportunity to help raise funds. There’s no shortage of need out there, but we’ve nominated to give 20% of ticket sales to WIRES, wildlife rescue.

What to do about Smoke and Heat

"If you operate an air conditioner during smoky conditions, switch it to ‘recycle’ or ‘recirculate’ to reduce smoke coming inside your home."
"Avoid physical activity outdoors (exercise allows more fine particles to be breathed deeper into the lungs). In particular, people with pre-existing lung or heart "..Bushfire smoke and your health (QLD Governement)

Tips to survive the heat
Drink water, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Take a bottle with you always.
Hot cars kill. Never leave kids, older people or pets in cars. The temperature inside a parked car can double within minutes.
Keep cool. Seek out air-conditioned buildings, draw your blinds, use a fan, take cool showers and dress in light and loose clothing made from natural fabrics.
Plan ahead. Schedule activities in the coolest part of the day and avoid exercising in the heat. If you must go out, wear a hat and sunscreen and take a bottle of water with you.
Check in on others. Look after those most at risk in the heat – your neighbour living alone, the elderly, the young, people with a medical condition and don’t forget your pets...
