Win tickets to enjoy an evening recital showcasing the work of women musicians and composers.
The Women’s Club in collaboration with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, are hosting a series of 7 evening recitals from April to June 2021 to recognise the creative enterprise of women performers by giving them space to perform publicly, so that they can foster their performance skills, expand their professional networks, and become leaders in the music industry.
The Conservatorium will mostly draw on women instrumentalists and singers from their talented pool of students, staff and recent graduates, to perform. The program includes classical and jazz performances — including work by women composers across two centuries — as well as contemporary art music that draws on the work of women composers who are part of the SCM’s Composing Women postgraduate program.
All three of the seven recitals will also include a dinner event, with a two-course menu created by The Women's Club resident chef, Martin Teplitzky.
“When women meet other women from different areas, “creative ideas fly.” - Anna Reid, Dean of Sydney Conservatorium
Women in Jazz — Chloe Kim
Chloe Kim is an exceptional percussionist with a goal to ensure that unaccompanied percussion music will become a
staple on everyone’s Spotify playlist. Her set will showcase her solo drum work with a focus on experimental and improvisational
techniques. You will hear subtle influences of jazz and traditional Korean music in her work.
Martin Teplitzky began his career as an apprentice chef at the age of sixteen, at the iconic Berowra Waters Inn, just after it opened.
In 1983 he opened his first restaurant, Bon Cafard, in Sydney. It was awarded one hat in the inaugural Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 1984 and is fondly remembered to this day.
After selling the restaurant, in 1989 Martin moved to the United Kingdom, where he set up a cookery consultancy company and began teaching at the Divertimenti Cookery School and Leith's School of Food and Wine in London.
He returned to Sydney in 1995 and reopened Berowra Waters Inn, where he re-established his restaurant credentials, receiving two hats in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 1996.
In 1999 Martin moved back to the United Kingdom, then on to Piedmont in the north of Italy, where he cooked and taught at La Villa Hotel and cooking school.
Martin returned to Sydney in 2012 to open his own cookery school, Take 2 Eggs, in Gretta Anna's former school (and home) in Wahroonga. In 2019, he became Chef at The Women’s Club.
