If you're keen to dive into an arts-filled 2021, make tracks to Chatswood's premier concert hall The Concourse to catch its resident orchestra the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra. Known for pushing the boundaries of classical music as well as performing symphonic twists on much-loved rock and pop tunes, the orchestra will delight audiences at its epic Gala Concert this summer.
With two performances set for Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14, it's the perfect excuse to head to the buzzing suburb for Lunar New Year celebrations, with everything from art exhibitions to cultural performances and markets to explore pre- and post-performance. Or, you can treat your partner in crime to a dose of live tunes for Valentine's Day, with romantic melodies such as Delibes' 'Flower Duet' and Tchaikovsky's iconic 'Waltz of the Flowers' from The Nutcracker both on the set list.
And, it won't be all strings and woodwind, with the talents of Pacific Opera's rising stars singing pieces from the likes of Puccini's Madama Butterfly, Bizet's Carmen and Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier. Plus, at the centre of the program will be a new work by Willoughby Symphony Orchestra's composer-in-residence Alice Chance. The orchestra hosts some of the country's most exciting emerging artists and composers and is led by the world-renowned conductor and artistic director Dr Nicholas Milton AM. For the Gala Concert, the orchestra will be conducted by Guy Noble.
