Early 1920s' allure
Go back in time with a Vintage Styling workshop run by the Miss Lindy Charm School for Girls. Revive the golden age of glamour and etiquette of the early 20th century: red lipstick, girdles, garters, seamed nylons, sky-high heels, pin curls, victory rolls, finger waves and a wiggly walk.
Women have arrived armed with make-up and a mirror and departed three hours later looking completely glamorous.
This workshop is suitable for the hard-core vintage fashionistas or a novice wanting to inject a bit of vintage flavour into her life.
It's on Sunday, September 15, 2pm to 5pm, at the Lewers Gallery, Emu Plains. Cost: $85.
Details: Bookings (essential): 4735 1100.
Trio at the Village
Joseph Tawadros is taking his trio to play for the next Live at the Village concert in Springwood on September 20.
A master of the oud, a Middle Eastern lute, Joseph's dazzling technique and hair-raising tempos are matched by his brother James Tawadros, who creates effervescent percussion on what appear to be the simplest of instruments.
Rounding out the trio is pianists Matt McMahon.
"It's hard to think of any Australian musician but Joseph who, by the age of 30, has been featured by the Australian Chamber Orchestra, recognised in the Arab world and has also thrilled legions of jazz and world music fans internationally," Gary Daley, artistic director of Live at the Village, said.
Joseph Tawadros' compositions are a combination of highly emotional music intertwined with boundless energy, pushing the boundaries of melody and metre.
The Tawadros brothers are from a musical family, Joseph being three years old when his family migrated from Cairo in the mid-1980s.
Now recognised worldwide, he has performed with many celebrated artists, including Zakir Hussain, John Abercrombie, Jack DeJohnette, Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Neil Finn, Katie Noonan, Lior, sarangi master Sultan Khan and Camerata Salzburg, to name a few.
Details: September 20, 8pm, Presbyterian Hall, 160 Macquarie Road, Springwood.
Tickets: $35-$25 from the Turning Page Bookshop, Springwood, or call 4751 5171.
