Syd­ney Sym­phony Orches­tra Fel­lows for Gal­ston Con­cert

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Music And Arts -

The Gal­ston Con­certs will present the Syd­ney Sym­phony Orches­tra Fel­lows en­sem­bles on Sun­day 29 July, start­ing 2pm in Gal­ston Unit­ing Church, 11 School Road, Gal­ston.

The pro­gram com­bines pro­fes­sional play­ers and young per­form­ers. The Fel­lows are lead­ing tal­ents of the next gen­er­a­tion and are al­ready play­ing pro­fes­sion­ally with the SSO, Aus­tralia’s flag­ship sym­phonic en­sem­ble.

The con­cert show­cases in­stru­ments not heard pre­vi­ously in the Gal­ston se­ries – oboe, clar­inet, bas­soon, French horn and per­cus­sion – plus flute, trum­pet, trom­bone and strings com­bined as a mini-orches­tra, the largest group yet for the Gal­ston project.

In a clever pro­gram theme, they’ll per­form mu­sic writ­ten by great com­posers when also in their twen­ties – a Ser­e­nade for strings and winds in Ro­man­tic style by Brahms from 1858, a quar­tet for oboe and strings from the Clas­si­cal pe­riod by Mozart from 1781 plus a Suite by Schul­hoff from 1922.

The mod­ern style jazz-in­spired suite in­cludes dances of ‘pops’ ap­peal – Rag­time, Boston Waltz, Tango, Shimmy and more.

Fol­low­ing the close-to-ca­pac­ity at­ten­dance at the pre­vi­ous Gal­ston Con­cert by pi­anist Bernard Walz in early June, ad­vanced book­ings for 29 July are ad­vised on­line at www.try­book­ (search Gal­ston).

En­quiries in­clud­ing avail­abil­ity of tick­ets on the day of the con­cert can be di­rected to Kath­leen Michael on 0412 037 069 or Robert Har­ris on 0428 248 348.
