Sculpture by the Sea x Perth Symphony Orchestra Collaboration

For a second year running Perth Symphony Orchestra collaborated with Sculptures by the sea for another beautiful experience for the WA public, thanks to the support of Blue Ocean Monitoring.

Over three balmy March Friday's of the the annual Cottesloe Sculpture by the Sea outdoor oceanside exhibition, selected Perth Symphony Orchestra musicians created five-minute musical improvisations. Each improvisational piece was inspired by the following five sculptural works from Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2024: Tetsuro Yamasaki, Keizo Ushio, Tim Macfarlane Reid, Tony Davis and Sharyn Egan.

Recordings of the 2024 musical improvisations were uploaded here and to the Sculpture by the Sea App so visitors could listen to these compositions whilst they viewed the works if they were unable to attend the live performances or from home.

Cottesloe beach and exhibition space was filled with members of the public from all different backgrounds, sharing in their love and appreciation for the arts. It was a beautiful sight to see and experience for a second year running, in how the arts creates connection.

Once again, a huge thank you to 'Blue Ocean Monitoring for all of the support in making this a reality for us.
