The Romantics – 29 & 30 June

Saturday 29th June, 7pm
Sunday 30th June, 2.30pm

Is there any greater celebratory work than the 1812 Overture? We think not! How will we fit the cannons into the 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 our 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 our list of works we would love to perform, but we have been limited by our lack of organ. Thankfully, we have found an organ we can hire and we 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.

We are joined at this concert by viola soloist Lisa Sung, currently of Julliard, and our regular collaborator Na Ri Kim on organ.
