26 May 2011 Sophie Serafino The Gold Violin CD Launch and Show Sydney Opera House photos and story; MiSociety Tweet
Quiet please, there’s a lady violinist on stage
Sophie Serafino’s Golden Violin, showcased atop a golden plinth, took centre stage as invited guests, pre-show cocktails in hand, packed the Utzon Room at Sydney’s Opera House. Images of Sophie Serafino projected through a film of transluscent curtaining faded as the lights mellowed and three shimmering young dancers swirled in as the opener for a stunning boutique theatrical presentation.
Sophie Serafino’s performance showcased the many talents of this Australian violinist who now has a large fan base in Europe. As the show deepened Sophie ‘Gypsied’ her way through not only her violin playing prowess but also her dramatic side taking on the persona of the fiery fiddler and then the soulful singer.
‘The Gold Violin’, Sophie’s latest CD, was launched at the show with the violinist, singer and composer playing and vocalising music from the CD ending with the extraodinarily named ‘PRISENCOLINENSINAINCIUSOL’ (can’t say it let alone sing it!).
An enormous three tiered gold lacquered cake was ceremoniously divided up amongst us all but the amazing icing that enveloped the cake was removed prior as it was purely for decorative purposes.
Quite an astonishing and most entertaining concert with an audience comprising of many from the music industry who all gave it a golden ‘thumbs up’. Thank you Sophie Serafino for broadening the appeal of the concert hall violin.
