Symphony sounds lift crowd spirits
The Perth Symphony Orchestra returned to Kwinana last Saturday to put on the biggest and best concert the town has ever seen as part of the Tianqi Lithium Symphony Spectacular.
The 55-piece orchestra performed to an audience of more than 7000 people under the stars on Calista Oval.
Mayor Carol Adams said the City was thrilled to have the world-class 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,” Mrs Adams 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’s Dr Richard Walley on didgeridoo, and a Bee Gees medley that sent the crowd into “Night Fever”.
“I am proud that the event was
very family friendly, with everyone having a great time whilst respecting our request to drink responsibly and refraining from smoking at the venue,” Mrs Adams said.
The Tianqi Lithium Symphony Spectacular was a free event made possible thanks to support from Tianqi Lithium, CSBP, Kleenheat, Fremantle Ports and the Kwinana Industries Council.
