Affairs of the Heart

Presented by Camerata of St John’s

Contemplating love in the Valentine’s Season. 

Affairs of the Heart brings Camerata of St John’s together with legendary and gifted Australian singer-songwriter Melinda Schneider to perform an enchanting selection of music in their Camerata Lounge program.

Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich’s Violin Concerto Affairs of the Heart, caused the Canadian Radio switchboards to light up from coast to coast when first broadcast in 1997. The piece so captivated drivers they remained in their cars, listening to the end, even though they had long since arrived at their destinations.

Come witness a sublime concert about love and our enduring obsession with this most human of emotions.

Mozetich Affairs of the Heart, Concerto for Violin and String Orchestra (1997)
Mendelssohn Adagio-Allegro from Quartet Op.13, Ist es wahr? (Is it true?)
Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht, Op.4 (Transfigured Night)
Melinda Schneider Selected charts from albums, including hits from Melinda Does Doris – A Tribute To Doris Day


Camerata of St John’s just gave easily the best concert I’ve heard all year. Wow!

Matthew Dewey ABC Producer

Camerata's interpretations are bold but always tasteful. Their genius programming hits all the right buttons by attracting new audiences while never compromising on musical integrity.
