Sound & Waves

Celebrate the spiritual connection West Australians have with the Indian Ocean.

24 March 2021

Perth Symphony is thrilled to launch our 2021 Heritage Series with the immersive Sound & Waves concert, presented by Blue Ocean Monitoring.

Set by the ocean at the iconic B Shed in Fremantle, the program will include a bespoke mix of music designed to evoke a sense of movement and awaken the spirit of the ocean; from classical to contemporary pieces including a WA Premiere and soundscapes.

It is a celebration of the unique and spiritual relationship West Australians have with the ocean.


DATE: Wednesday 24th March 2021
WHEN: 5.30pm doors & bar open, 6.30pm – 8.30pm concert with interval
WHERE: B Shed, Fremantle


Live music from Perth Symphony strings and guest artists will be interwoven with stories told by individual West Australians whose connections to the ocean are deeply profound and reflect our own experiences in this isolated but beautiful part of the world.

Whether you surf, swim, fish, sail, or came to Perth by boat, this concert aims to bring to life our Indian Ocean through a stunning music soundtrack featuring works by classical greats such as Vivaldi and Gershwin and contemporary composers including Ross Edwards and John Butler.

Thank you to presenting partner Blue Ocean Monitoring, concert partner UWA Oceans Institute and event partners Fremantle Ports, Gage Roads and Voyager Estate for making this concert possible. ‘Sound & Waves’ is the first in Perth Symphony’s 2021 Heritage Series. We would like to acknowledge and thank the Wright Burt Foundation, for partnering with this series.
