Symphony on the Green

Presented by the City of Rockingham

Symphony on the Green 5.30pm Village Green FREE
Sat 19 Feb at Village Green, FREE

Featuring Perth Symphony Orchestra

In the southern suburbs of Perth, near the beach where the Catalpa escapees launched their boat, we celebrate orchestral ocean adventures in this much-loved annual City of Rockingham concert.

For 2022, Perth Festival commissions a new work from Richard Walley alongside the Perth Symphony Orchestra – one that weaves together Noongar and Celtic stories and sings of connections to Country both near and far. 

Perth Symphony Orchestra 

Perth Symphony was founded in 2011 and is known as the orchestra that breaks the rules. With over 220 musicians regularly employed, the orchestra is creating a home for WA talent. Perth Symphony plays in places and spaces you’d never expect to find an orchestra, from sheds to warehouses, foyers to art deco cinemas and aeroplane hangars! They perform music from Mozart to Metallica, Björk to Beethoven and everything in between.

Perth Symphony’s mission is ‘Music for Everyone’ and by taking the orchestra out of the concert hall and into communities across WA, they are proud to have performed to over 250,000 people so far. They are unique amongst orchestras and believe that their music has the ability to move and inspire people from all cultures and walks of life. They challenge traditions and create powerful, compelling performances that are often unexpected and always truly memorable. They have a track record of producing and creating groundbreaking concerts from the critically acclaimed UNPLUGGED: Nirvana Reimagined to Faith & Freedom: The Music of George Michael to the recent Nothing Compares: The Music of Prince performed at HBF Stadium in Perth that had the audience dancing in the aisles. Perth Symphony has consistently performed to capacity audiences in Western Australia and has received standing ovations overseas. Bringing orchestral music to people who wouldn’t ordinarily hear it, and in ways, they couldn’t possibly imagine is their primary focus. Perth Symphony brings music to life in a way that you don’t just hear it, you can see it and feel it too!
