Event Details

Experience an evening of wonderful music as the beautiful vocals of Lior are accompanied by Australia’s next generation of exceptional young musicians from the Australian Youth Orchestra.

Under the baton of leading Australian composer, Nigel Westlake, explore the depth, texture and emotion of a range of works including Compassion – a symphony of songs drawn from a rich collection of ancient texts, uniting the soulful vocals of Lior with the vivid drama of Westlake’s orchestral style.

Radiating truth and sincerity, this repertoire examines timely ideas ranging from the preciousness of the wilderness to that of compassion between human beings, mixing stirring sounds with profound and poetic messages.

Join us in this celebration of Australian orchestral music as we showcase the brilliance of our home-grown talent. An exceptional evening of music not to be missed!
