PSO Summer Concerts
25 November - 31 March 2018
The mission of Perth Symphony Orchestra is ‘Music for Everyone’ and we love taking the orchestra on the road and into new communities, sharing the magic of the Symphony with as many people as we can.
PSO ‘DISCOVER’ concerts: where communities discover each other, and the magic of the symphony, all in one evening.
This summer, thanks to the incredible support of so many local government Town and City Councils, we are able to bring the Symphony to a community near you. Performing as a string ensemble with percussion up to the full symphony orchestra, our programs are designed to give each and every person who comes to hear us a magical time. So, whether INXS or Puccini is your thang, DISCOVER the magic of PSO and expect something for everyone.
2nd December, 2017: Act-Belong-Commit’s ‘Rock Symphony’ for the City of Kwinana
We kick off our DISCOVER concerts with Act-Belong-Commit’s ‘Rock Symphony’ at Callista Oval in Kwinana. Support Acts hit the stage from 6.30pm with the full orchestra on around 7.30pm. The program features Justin Burford who recently wowed audiences as ‘Kurt’ in our UNPLUGGED: Nirvana Reimagined concert. Justin will be singing INXS, Nirvana, Queen and more. The wonderful Fremantle-based singer, Rose Parker, joins us for a rendition of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin, inspired by the performance by Heart at the 2012 Kennedy Centre Honours in the US. Several young WAAPA artists also make the PSO full symphony debut, with Lani Melrose and James MacCallum joining us on stage (both of whom featured in our recent Faith & Freedom: The Music of George Michael concert at The Astor) along with soprano Rebekah Bennett and tenor Joshua Mitting. Also featuring will be young Scotch College piper Ryan Hodgetts in a brilliant rock medley of ACDC and John Farnham. Scotch College is the home of PSO so it’s great for us to collaborate with a young student from the College.
