Saturday 17th September 7.00pm & Sunday 18th September 2.30pm at Strathfield Town Hall
To quote the words of Richard Wagner, ‘I believe in God, Mozart and Beethoven’. This season, we pay homage to one of the greatest composers to have ever lived, Ludwig Van Beethoven. Not only will Strathfield Symphony be performing the Overture from Beethoven’s Egmont, dictating the life and heroism of a 16th-century Dutch nobleman, the Count of Egmont, but the orchestra will also be reprising Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, often considered one of the greatest compositions in the western musical canon. Alongside these exceptional works we will also be performing the overture from Semiramide, written by Beethoven’s contemporary, Gioachino Rossini.
For this concert, we will be collaborating once again with Excelsia College Choir and Sydney Sakura Choir, along with the wonderful soloists Caroline King, Jermaine Chau, Damian Arnold & Tristan Entwistle.
Following a commended 2015 year, featuring Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7, Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, and Holst’s Planets, Strathfield Symphony invites audiences to join us once again on our musical journey for 2016. This year will feature music from the silver screen, a theatrical arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and a story of love and despair through Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique.
