Orches­tra af­ter­noon de­lights

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

FROM Ge­orge Fred­er­ick Han­del and Leonard Bern­stein to Felix Men­delssohn and An­ton Dvo­rak, the Sun­shine Coast Sym­phony Orches­tra will de­light with an af­ter­noon of pop­u­lar or­ches­tral clas­sics.

The pro­gram in­cludes some ‘watery’ favourites – the storm-tossed ro­man­tic aban­don of Men­delssohn’s He­brides Over­ture, and the some­what more re­strained Wa­ter Mu­sic of Han­del.

Also in­cluded in this part of the pro­gram is the Largo from Dvo­rak’s New World Sym­phony.

Rem­i­nis­cent of a more mod­ern Amer­ica, the se­cond half of the pro­gramme in­cludes the brash­ness of Gersh­win’s Strike up the Band, Bern­stein’s mod­ern take on Romeo

and Juliet with his West-Side Story Suite, and Co­p­land’s inim­itable knees-up Hoe-down from his Rodeo bal­let suite. A more in­tro­spec­tive touch is in­cluded with Fan­fare for the Com­mon Man, also by Aaron Co­p­land.

Come and al­low the Sun­shine Coast Sym­phony Orches­tra to waft you off to other worlds.

The show will be held on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 28 from 2pm at the Maleny Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, 23 Maple St, Maleny.

Tick­ets are $20 pre-booked, $25 at the door and chil­dren aged un­der 16 are free.

Tick­ets can be pur­chased at the Maleny Tourist In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, on­line at sun­shinecoast sym­phony orches­tra. com or by call­ing 5445 3703.
