The Australian Youth Orchestra’s Young Symphonists will showcase their vivacious energy and incredible skill in a must-see performance at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre on Saturday, 30 September, at 7.30 pm.
Led by Simon Hewett, the orchestra is made up of 60 musicians between the ages of 13 and 18, who play with musical sensitivity beyond their years. The program will open with Queensland-based composer Sam Dickenson’s Across the Years, followed by Britten’s beloved Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
This work uses a sweeping theme by Purcell to showcase the different corners of the
orchestra, giving every instrument a chance to shine.
The concert will culminate with Rachmaninov’s Symphony No.2. Rachmaninov’s ability to craft beautiful, heart-wrenching melodies is on full display in this symphony. The work unfolds over the course of an hour with cascading waves of rich orchestral colour.
AYO Young Symphonists is many musicians’ first step onto the AYO pathway. The intensive week-long program provides musicians with the opportunity to ignite their musical imagination and perform exhilarating works for a live audience.
Tickets for this concert are free. However, bookings will incur an associated booking fee from BMEC: https://www.bmec.com.au/whats-on/ayo-young-symphonists-in-concert/
