Symphony Under the Stars
Presented by the City of Wanneroo
Featuring Perth Symphony Orchestra
Near the northern beaches of Perth, the City of Wanneroo joins our symphonic experience. This family-friendly new concert features members of the Perth Symphony Orchestra performing their trademark ebullient and engaging programming with a nod to the Festival’s ocean theme.
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!
