Sartory String Quartet: Paul Wright (violin), Pascale Whiting (violin), Kathy Corecig (viola) & Sophie Curtis (cello). Plus Susannah Williams (violin), Phil Waldron (bass) and Anthony Maydwell (harp). Plus some surprise guests!

You may know Kathy Corecig as a freelance violist around town. But did you also know that she composes music? No? Then come along to hear a selection of her compositions, including Passacaglia for strings and two harps, a companion piece for Kirsten Lepore’s (US) acclaimed stop-motion film ‘Bottle’ (pictured), an excerpt from her recent commission for the Mandurah Stretch Festival’s Sound may be the last sense to leave us, a dance work directed by Helen Duncan and Sketches of Twisted River for String Quartet, inspired by John Irving’s novel ‘Last Night in Twisted River’. This showcase of Kathy’s pieces will feature her fellow Sartory String Quartet members Paul Wright, Pascale Whiting and Sophie Curtis and a host of special guests.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body and the Western Australian Government through the Department of Culture the Arts.

Pro Arte Collective was established in 2005 by five dynamic women who all enjoy the challenges of playing a diverse range of chamber music and performing to a broad audience base.

The members of Pro Arte Collective, who are busy freelance musicians in their own right, have come together to form a group dedicated to exploring music for wind instruments from many genres including contemporary, jazz and world music in addition to the stellar pieces of repertoire for wind quintet.
