An Irish Night: Strings, Stout and Storytelling, performed by the Perth Chamber Orchestra, is a celebration of the music and stories that have brought the Emerald Isle’s culture, people and history to our shores. Join us for an unforgettable night of some of the most beautiful (and toe-tapping) music inspired by stories from Ireland.
Highlights include music from ‘Riverdance’ performed by the Walker Family Trio and Perth Chamber Orchestra Strings, Sibelius Impromptu for String Orchestra, and the finale from the Bartok Divertimento for Strings, to the traditional sounds of Irish fiddle legend Rob Zielinski with tunes such as ‘Man o’the House’ and Bryan Rice Dalton’s spell binding voice in a rendition of ‘Green Among the Gold’ in collaboration with the Perth Chamber Orchestra Strings.
Soloists include Paul Wright, Sartory String Quartet, Bryan Rice Dalton. Ray Walker, Jessica Gethin, Sophie Curtis and Rob Zielinski. Irish Dancers bring the concert together for a fully immersive experience celebrating the Irish in Australia.
