Celebration of Youth

24 March 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDT

$10 – $45

Steel City Strings are joined by BlueScope Youth Orchestra from the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music to form a 50 piece ensemble in this lively and varied program that will lift the roof of venues.

Featured artists who are all still at school include:

  • Peter Lavilles, winner of the 2018 Wollongong Con. Concerto Competition, performing Weber’s virtuosic ‘Bassoon Concerto’
  • Cedar Newman returns from violin studies in New York to present Saint-Saens’ brilliant ‘Introduction Rondo and  Capriccioso’
  • Singer/songwriters Emma Snellgrove and Caitlin Schlenker will get feet tapping with their original song ‘Capsized’, which wowed audiences in the Cantabile Music Festival at Sydney Opera House in 2018


  • World premiere of ‘Absence of Light’, composed specially for this event by local young composer and bass player Adrian Whitehall

In addition the combined orchestras will play suites and dances for chamber orchestra by Purcell, Boyce, Grieg and Piazzolla most of which BlueScope Youth Orchestra will be playing on their tour of Greece just after these concerts.
