Gala — Heroes of Hollywood

If your Saturday night is usually spent binging on back-to-back episodes of Bling Empire, then we’ve found a fancier alternative.

We're never going to suggest that you completely cancel your Netflix subscription, god forbid. But there's something special about live music that a night in simply cannot compete with. In a new one-off performance by the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra you can combine your love of blockbusters and the live concert experience in Gala — Heroes of Hollywood.

Head to Chatswood's Concert Hall at The Concourse on Saturday, February 18 or Sunday, February 19, and you'll be glad you did. Because for these performances you can relive the magic of your favourite movies with tunes you know and love from bona fide cinema classics like Jurassic Park, Jaws, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Forrest Gump, Rocky and Gladiator.

Heroes of Hollywood

Chief conductor and artistic director, Dr Nicholas Milton AM, has supported some of the most iconic orchestras in the world — including concerts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England, Hungary, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Asia — so your senses will be in the hands of experts. While some of these films might be more familiar to millennials, Gen Z audience members can take advantage of much cheaper tickets ($26 for under 26, $15.30 for under 16). 

Willoughby Symphony Orchestra's performance of Gala — Heroes of Hollywood will run for one weekend only, so be sure to grab your tickets before they sell out
