Mu­sic a shore thing


Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Kaylee Martin

It’s a truly spe­cial event where we have the op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise and ap­pre­ci­ate tal­ented young mu­si­cians and per­form­ers. - Deputy mayor Brian Oliver

PER­CUS­SION­ISTS, mu­si­cians and award­win­ning artists will band to­gether to bring a splash of in­ter­na­tional cul­ture to the Bur­swood fore­shore.

The Town of Vic­to­ria Park will host the an­nual clas­si­cal mu­sic out­door event Mu­sic by Moon­light on Sun­day evening.

Head­lined by the WA Youth Or­ches­tra (WAYO), the evening will be a cel­e­bra­tory mix­ture of lo­cal tal­ents and in­ter­na­tional acts. WAYO will re­visit Dis­ney favourites and clas­sic ac­tion films and take the au­di­ence on a mu­si­cal jour­ney through Aladdin, Star Wars, Pi­rates of the Caribbean and Juras­sic Park.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park deputy mayor Brian Oliver said the an­nual evening was a great cel­e­bra­tion of WA tal­ent.

“Mu­sic by Moon­light is a spe­cial event where we have the op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise tal­ented young mu­si­cians,” he said.

“The event is sure to be a won­der­ful way to end the week­end. So bring your fam­ily, friends and neigh­bours along for a de­light­ful evening of mu­sic un­der the stars.”

This year is the ninth time WAYO has per­formed, but the 2016 pro­gram prom­ises a di­verse, in­ter­na­tional line-up.

For­mer Cirque de Soleil per­cus­sion­ist Mar­cus Per­rozzi will guest per­form, along with award-win­ning Sey­chel­lois artist Grace Barbe.
