Orches­tra sure to hit right note

Great Southern Herald - - News - Jes­sica Cuth­bert

Great tunes with all the punch and power of a full orches­tra will be a high­light in Katan­ning this week­end.

The South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra, from Perth, will be in town and more than 40 mu­si­cians will take to the stage and delight au­di­ences with their news sounds.

South Side Sym­phony is one of Perth’s younger or­ches­tras and has carved out a rep­u­ta­tion for bring­ing great mu­sic of all sorts to au­di­ences in new and in­no­va­tive set­tings.

This week­end’s pro­gram in­cludes Fan­fare for the Com­mon Man, by Aaron Co­p­land, the show tune Strike up the Band, by Ge­orge Gersh­win, and the Dam­busters March from the film of the same name, com­posed by Eric Coates.

Also on Satur­day’s pro­gram are the Car­men Suite No 1, by Ge­orges Bizet, and the Sabre Dance and Ada­gio from Spar­ta­cus, by Aram Khacha­turian.

For the chil­dren, the pro­gram will in­clude the Dam­busters March, selec­tions from Car­men, and the sound­track from Pirates of the Caribbean. Chil­dren’s con­certs have been a big part of what South Side Sym­phony Orches­tra does as they are in­tro­duced to the in­stru­ments.

Both con­certs, con­ducted by mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Lau­rissa Wyl­lieMcCarthy, are at Katan­ning Town Hall. The Satur­day con­cert is at 7pm and the chil­dren’s con­cert is at 10.30am on Sun­day.

Tick­ets can be bought from the Shire of Katan­ning.
