Mother of all con­certs

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - OPINION -

THE South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra will per­form mu­sic out of this world dur­ing a Mother’s Day con­cert at the South Perth Com­mu­nity Hall.

The Melville-based orches­tra, which has about 45 mem­bers, will per­form with a choir for the first time when they team up with the Perth Un­der­grad­u­ate Cho­ral So­ci­ety.

Among the mu­sic that the orches­tra will play is The Plan­ets, an or­ches­tral suite by English com­poser Gus­tav Holst.

Orches­tra pres­i­dent Irene Wright said the theme of the con­cert was ce­les­tial works.

“The Plan­ets are ethe­real works, but there will also be some mu­sic from the Ro­man­tic era. The mu­sic is for mothers to en­joy, it won’t be any­thing too full on, it’ll be easy to en­joy,” she said.

Mrs Wright said the orches­tra had played var­ied styles of mu­sic since form­ing in 2011.

“We have per­formed the tra­di­tional for­mat of over­tures, concerto and sym­phony,” she said.

“In the past we have been con­tracted for per­for­mances at the Ser­pen­tine Air­field and Clare­mont Ten­nis Club.”
