Sounds of sym­phony

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page - D472520

THE South Perth Civic Cen­tre will be en­livened with the beau­ti­ful sounds of the South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra dur­ing an up­com­ing con­cert.

THE South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra will look to warm up the pub­lic dur­ing a con­cert at the South Perth Civic Cen­tre.

The Win­ter Melodies con­cert will fea­ture West Aus­tralian Sym­phony Orches­tra soloist Rob Glad­stones, who will per­form a French horn con­certo by com­poser Rein­hold Glière.

Orches­tra pres­i­dent Irene Wright said the con­certo had a “vir­tu­osic” and “lyri­cal feel” to it.

“Rob came and re­hearsed with us the other week and it was re­ally amaz­ing, it’s quite a re­cent piece (1950s) com­pared with the other pieces,” she said.

“It’s the sec­ond con­cert that he has per­formed with us and we are ex­cited to have him back.

“He per­formed with us in 2011 when we first started and he saw us in our em­bry­onic stage but we have had big changes since then.”

Wright said the con­cert would start with a per­for­mance of Night on Bald Moun­tain, which was en­er­getic and very fiery.

“Af­ter Rob’s con­certo, there will be a per­for­mance of Sym­phony Num­ber 2 by Fin­nish com­poser Jean Si­belius,” she said.

“It’s go­ing to be a dy­namic con­cert and not one where peo­ple will fall asleep.

“It’s a huge pro­gram but it’s all com­ing to­gether in our re­hearsal.

“There’s noth­ing nicer than be­ing in­doors lis­ten­ing to sub­lime mu­sic while it’s cold out­side.”

Win­ter warm­ers: South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra mem­bers Peter Mount­ford, Aaron Wy­att and Irene Wright.
