Soprano Nadia Piave and Gino Pengue playing guitar, cittern and guitarlele, present I dreamed I saw St Augustine…a concert for Easter, a collection of chants, hymns and chansons – music for reflection before Easter

Says Nadia, “In December last year I performed a Christmas concert in the beautiful St Peter Chanel chapel in Hunters Hill, and this reminded me Sydney boasts many such small churches and sacred spaces. The wonderful little sandstone church hall attached to St Augustine’s Balmain is such a space and it provides a perfect architectural and acoustic backdrop for a concert of songs that, put simply, I love, have provided solace and have in the past given me pause for reflection…what better time to share these songs than in the lead up to Easter.”
