COUNCIL PUBLIC SESSIONS
SOUTH GIPPSLAND AUSTRALIA DAY
BRILLIANT pianist Joshua Hooke will be re-
turning to Wonthaggi this month on the grand
piano, in a ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ event.
The local classical pianist will be performing
at the Wonthaggi Baptist Church, for an incred-
ible afternoon of music.
Joshua started mucking around on the piano
at age four and after lessons during his teenage
years, soon got the knack of it and began playing
on the big stage.
“I was just having some fun on the piano to
begin with and then just started taking it more
seriously,” he said last week.
He completed his schooling at Wonthaggi Sec-
ondary College, where he notched up a ‘perfect’
study score of 50 in VCE Music.
He was also awarded the Margaret Scholfield
Memorial Scholarship for music performance
and a VCE Premier’s Award for music.
“I’m really looking forward to it, I think it’s go-
ing to be a great night.”
As a keen chamber musician, he has per-
formed with Australian soprano Greta Brad-
man, and has given award-winning chamber
music performances for the Music Society of
Victoria as well as world premieres of new Aus-
He’s even been heard through the airwaves of
ABC Classic FM and 774.
“I’ll be covering the classics, including
Beethoven – and there will be ones people hear
and recognise straight away.”
He graduated with honours in a Bachelor of
Music and has previously given solo perfor-
mances at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Palais
Theatre, Victorian Parliament House, Melba Hall
and Plenary Hall.
Joshua studied two months of his Masters of
Music Performance in Vienna under Paul Badu-
ra-Skoda, Pavalli Jumpanen (Finland), Ronald
Farren-Price and Anna Goldsworthy.
Recently in 2017, he played overseas in work-
shops and concerts in London and Europe.
Joshua achieved his Masters of Music Perfor-
mance in Melbourne, December 2017.
The Stars of Tomorrow concerts give up and
coming musicians and vocalists the opportunity
to get performance experience.
The concerts also allow audiences in Bass
Coast to see and hear some of the most talented
artists as they develop their skills.
Performances are usually held on a Saturday
afternoon, with the money raised either going to
support the artist or to charity.
It is a great opportunity to see and hear some
exciting musicians who need our support, so
make sure to come along and catch them.
Joshua will be performing at the Wonthaggi
Baptist Church on Saturday, January 20 at 2pm.
Tickets can be purchased at the door for $20.
For more information, call Robert Hayward on
0412 645 478.
Joshua Hooke will be playing a series of classical songs on the grand piano in Wonthaggi
later this month.

ashamed,” she shared to Facebook.
Woolworths responded to the post, saying
there is a “high demand ...as soon as the New
Year starts. To meet this early demand, our
in-store bakers have started baking fresh Hot
Cross buns,” they responded.
