Perth Symphony Orchestra delights with an ocean of music
Perth Symphony Orchestra will premiere its 2021 Heritage Series, with the immersive Sound & Waves concert on 24 March.
Set by the water at the iconic B Shed in Fremantle, Sound & Waves celebrates the spiritual connection West Australians have with the Indian Ocean through a bespoke mix of live music, interwoven with stories told by WA individuals.
Perth Symphony will bring to life works by classical greats such as Vivaldi and Gershwin, juxtaposed with contemporary composers including Katie Noonan. Special solo performances made up of Ross Edwards ‘Water Spirit Song’ by Principal Cellist Sophie Curtis as well as guitarist Rick Webster performing John Butler’s ‘Ocean’ will provide a refreshing and contemporary twist to the event.
The concert includes a world premiere soundscape performance of the Rottnest Channel topography, a special collaboration between Perth Symphony Orchestra and WA composer Rebecca Erin Smith commissioned, especially for the concert.
Whether you surf, swim, fish or sail, this concert will evoke a sense of movement and awaken your connection to the ocean.
Featured non-Australian music: Vivaldi, Gershwin
