Perth Symphony Orchestra will join forces with Perth Youth Orchestra for the finale of their season.
Under the direction of Allan Young, the two orchestras are set to appear together for the first time in three years at Perth Concert Hall on Saturday February 27 at 7.30pm.
The first half of the concert will see Perth Symphony Orchestra perform the Overture from William Tell, Carmen Suite No. 1, an orchestration of the music from George Bizet’s opera, and Malcolm Arnold’s Tam o’ Shanter, based on the famous poem by Robert Burns.
After the interval Perth Symphony Orchestra will be joined on stage by the young musicians of Perth Youth Orchestra to perform a selection of other popular classics as well as music from stage and screen including Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.
“This is a very exciting finale to Perth Symphony’s Season,” said Mr Young. “A real family concert with something that will be enjoyed by all age groups.
“We are particularly excited about having Perth Youth Orchestra joining PSO for the second half. This combined orchestra will feature over 180 players and is sure to make an amazing sound as well as providing an incredible visual spectacle. Many concert goers may remember the fantastic sell-out concert three years ago when the two orchestras last paired up and I am sure this concert will be just as exciting.”
