Leslie and Kit Spencer perform at NGA

les-han-performing-at-nga-10-may-2009-04On Mother’s Day 2009, Leslie and Kit Spencer performed together at the National Gallery of Australia as part of the 15th Canberra International Music Festival.¬†¬† Kit Spencer is a lovely harpist and her equally lovely mother, Leslie, accompanied her on guitar.¬† They performed a duet by the Catalonian guitarist/composer Feliu Gasull Altisent.

The event was billed as “NGA Promenade Concert”.   It featured groups of musicians performing in various spaces around the gallery.  The music was selected to reflect the mood and style of the artworks displayed.  Leslie and Kit’s piece complemented a painting by the Spanish Catalan artist, Joan Miró titled “Paysage [Landscape] 1927″.

The audience was invited to walk from one performance to the next.  It all worked beautifully.  What a fantastic idea!  Leslie is a member of Canberra Classical Guitar Society and teaches at Cooma School of Music.
