Perth Chamber Orchestra presents the 2015 Vivaldi by Candlelight concert at the magical St George’s Cathedral in the heart of Perth City.

We are excited to announce the program of works to be performed, showcasing the music of Vivaldi and other contemporaries such as Caldara, Gregori and more, performed in the style in which it was meant to be heard: in a beautiful cathedral, lit by candlelight, with the aroma of Italian Food and Wines to complete this sensory experience.
