Strathfield Symphony Orchestra: Romantics
29 June @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST$20 – $30
Is there any greater celebratory work than the Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture? Strathfield Symphony Orchestra think not! How will they fit the cannons into the Strathfield Town Hall? You will have to be there to find out.
Although technically pushing the boundaries of romanticism, William Walton’s Viola concerto joins the program. A tribute to Strathfield Symphony’s fantastic viola section who boast the highest percentage of volunteers that help keep the orchestra running (our treasurer, secretary, vice president and concert caterer are all violas!).
The Saint-Säens’ Organ Symphony has long been on Strathfield Symphony’s list of works they would love to perform, but they have been limited by our lack of organ. Thankfully, they have found an organ they can hire and have finally been able to program this fantastic work. The inclusion of this symphony represents Strathfield Symphony’s dedication to exploring repertoire less often performed by amateur orchestras.
Strathfield Symphony Orchestra are joined at this concert by viola soloist Lisa Sung, currently of Juilliard, and regular collaborator Na Ri Kim on organ.
