Lithgow City Orchestra, recently awarded by the Greater Lithgow Arts Council, will be presenting their Winter Concert at Lithgow Library on Saturday 4th June from 10am to 11am.
LCO took out the Group award, shared with the cast of Lithgow Musical Society’s 2021 production of Les Miserables at the recent Arts Council Gala Awards night. Spokesperson for the Orchestra Peter Avery said, “I was absolutely delighted to accept the Award. It’s a recognition of LCO’s dedication to making beautiful music and their contribution to the arts in the local community.”
Jamie Briton, the Orchestra’s Musical Director said members of the public can expect a programme full of variety and tuneful music ranging over several centuries from the Baroque period, Classical, Romantic, 20th Century and popular music including works by Handel, Purcell, Bizet and Grieg.
This is the third time in the past 12 months LCO will use the Library to stage a concert. Acting Library Coordinator Sharon Lewis wants to encourage the public to come to this free event, “Enjoy the warmth of the Library, browse the shelves, use a computer, read a newspaper, or just sit and listen, then join the Orchestra for morning tea and a chat at 11am.”
