Classical Music 2024

Barry Henze


Hello, my name is Barry Henze. I am 73 years young, naturalised Aussie since 1970, born in Heidelberg/Germany.

My biggest passion among others is and has always been  Classical Music. I learnt to play the piano for 3 years, and have visited literally hundreds of Classical Concerts in my lifetime. I also had the honour of meeting some great musical personalities such as Lenny Bernstein, Herbert von Karajan, Friedrich Gulda, Yevgenij Kissin, Claudio Abado and Mikael Pletnev, just to name a few.

With the kind help and support of the most friendly ladies at the U3A I could get a very sought after presentation room in the building, with a tremendous big screen together with a completely refurbished fantastic sound system, comfortable chairs and a modern reverse cycle air con.

I was given a very convenient booking time from 10.30 to 12.30 on each Wednesday morning, and plan to group together a certain number of Classical Music enthusiasts, with the love and passion for all varieties of this genre!

We shall meet, discuss, introduce and present a program of different pieces on the big screen, with a short tea/coffee break of approx. 20 minutes. Every group member will be most welcome to contribute his or her own program with my personal help for the start.
