Led by WASO’s Assistant Conductor Carlo Antonioli, the program includes popular, classical pieces and a world premiere concerto from the MACA Limited Classics concert series; delivering regional communities the same extraordinary live music experience as the Perth mainstage. Audiences will also have the opportunity to learn more about the repertoire and the orchestra at a free pre-concert talk.
WASO is thrilled to feature Principal Cor anglais Leanne Glover as soloist in a new work from Iain Grandage, and conclude with Beethoven’s exhilarating Symphony No. 3.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to return to Western Australia’s regional areas, this time bringing the experience of a full live orchestra to audiences in Esperance and Albany. Our regional fans are important to us and we look forward to delivering WASO to even more communities in the future.” - Mark Coughlan, Chief Executive Officer – WASO
The tour also includes free open rehearsal experiences for schools and local community groups, increasing participation and engagement with the Orchestra. For the first time masterclass programs will also be delivered to schools in each area, enabling students to receive tuition from WASO musicians.
“WASO is a world class Orchestra, making classical music accessible to regional audiences through tours such as this. The performances, as well as educational experiences with pre-concert talks and rehearsals will be anticipated events in these communities.” – David Templeman, Minister for Culture & the Arts
