Phoenix Baroque Trio - The Baroque Bizarre

Phoenix Collective presents Concert #2: The Baroque Bizarre. Performed by Phoenix Baroque Trio, this concert will highlight the quirky, intoxicating and virtuosic nature of the Baroque: great works by master composers Bach and Vivaldi, and just as impressive works by lesser-known composers Castello, Biber and Schmelzer. This is an eclectic program exploring the realms of tone colour, experimentation and virtuosity.
Sunday 12th May, 2.30 - 4.30pm
Hunter Baillie Presbyterian Church

Buruwan Picnic

NoW Annandale are organising a "farewell picnic" for Buruwan Park 4-5pm Sunday 10th March 2019.

Come along and let the NSW Government, Westconnex and RMS know that you know that they are destroying a precious park, trees and habitat the the community has worked on for over 25 years.

people protesting in park people protesting in parkRally Buruwan Park, 15 Feb 2018

Council has put up corflutes in the park to inform the hundreds of pedestrians, cyclists, light rail and bus passengers who use the park every day.
The RMS is yet to advise how pedestrians and cyclists will get to work, school and everywhere else they go via the park during construction and operation of the proposed road widening of the Crescent Annandale as part of Westconnex Stage 3.
There is an issue of trees being destroyed and increased heat island affect as well as over 25 years of Bush regeneration by volunteers.

A good time to email state and federal MPs, the Minister for Transport, the Minister for Planning, the Minster for the Environment and the Premier.
