Perth Symphony joins Phil Walleystack on tour!

Across the South West and Wheatbelt

29 August - 25 September 2020

Local legend Phil Walleystack is back on tour accompanied by the Perth Symphony Orchestra.

Touring throughout the South West in August and September, Phil is bringing his unique style of performance to Bunbury, Moora, Northam, Kalamunda, Geraldton and Albany.

After ten years touring internationally Phil has the ability to connect with every member of the audience with his raw talent and unique style of storytelling and humour. His harmonious mix of melodies enchant and captivate audiences the world over. Featuring lighting design and carefully selected visuals, the tour sees a collaboration between Walleystack and an eight-piece Perth Symphony string section in a cultural fusion of Phil’s traditionally inspired contemporary edge works with the classical sounds of the orchestra.

Driven by a passion for entertaining, Phil’s unique and powerful performance – combining the past and present through a truly exciting experience, is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

“My job as an entertainer is to take audiences on a journey, even if it’s just for a moment, through music, lighting and visuals” Phil Walleystack says.

“This is a magical opportunity for our musicians to join Phil and his band on stage, performing his wonderful songs with regional communities.” Perth Symphony CEO and Founder Bourby Webster added.

The tour will visit Bunbury, Moora, Northam, Kalamunda, Geraldton, and Albany, from 29 August – 25 September 2020, and will predominantly consist of free, ticketed performances to the public thanks to support from local councils and venues. Performances in Albany, Moora and Northam are supported by the CBH Group.

“Our regional communities often don’t have the same access to opportunities for the arts that Perth has, so we are really proud to support PSO and Phil for this tour, and excited for our grain growing communities who will experience this sure-to-be incredible performance by Phil and the talented PSO musicians,” said Chief External Relations Officer Brianna Peake.

PSO musicians will also visit schools and local venues engaging school kids and community members in interactive and fun workshops.

“I encourage everyone to come and hear Phil share his captivating stories and hear our musical worlds come together in such a meaningful way,” Bourby finished.
