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.

Featured artists include:

  • Peter Lavilles, winner of the 2018 Wollongong Con. Concerto Competition, performing Weber’s virtuosic ‘Bassoon Concerto’
  • Cedar Newman returns from her violin studies in New York to present Saint-Saens’ brilliant ‘Introduction and Rondo 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 in a program that BlueScope Youth Orchestra will be performing on their upcoming tour of Greece.

Come join us for this not-to-be-missed event and support young musicians in our region.
