Orches­tra stars at show

Kwinana Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Perth Sym­phony Orches­tra re­turned to Kwinana on Satur­day night to per­form the big­gest con­cert Kwinana has ever seen.

The 55-piece orches­tra per­formed the ul­ti­mate mu­sic ex­pe­ri­ence to an au­di­ence of more than 7000 un­der the stars on Calista Oval.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the City was thrilled to have the world­class per­form­ers back in Kwinana.

“The huge pop­u­lar­ity and suc­cess of last year’s con­cert gave us no choice but to ask the Perth Sym­phony Orches­tra to re­turn,” she said.

“We asked them to de­liver an even big­ger and bet­ter con­cert this year and they cer­tainly didn’t dis­ap­point.” Songs per­formed in­cluded Queen’s Bohemian Rhap­sody, Ice­house’s Great South­ern Land, fea­tur­ing Kwinana alumni Dr Richard Wal­ley on didgeri­doo, and a Bee Gees med­ley that gave the crowd a lit­tle Night Fever.

The Tianqi Lithium Sym­phony Spec­tac­u­lar was a free event made pos­si­ble thanks to gen­er­ous spon­sors.

At the end of the con­cert the crowd went wild to the clas­sic 1812 Over­ture at the Sym­phony Spec­tac­u­lar.
