Event Details

WASO is hitting the road this October and November with a touring party of over 70 musicians to share a complete live symphony orchestra experience in Esperance and Albany.

Led by WASO’s Assistant Conductor Carlo Antonioli, the program includes popular, classical pieces and a world premiere concerto, delivering these two regional centres the same extraordinary live music experience as the Perth mainstage.

Inspired by the ideals of the French revolution and the German Enlightenment, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony is also a deeply personal statement. This exhilarating and ground-breaking work is a triumph of artistic will over tragic adversity.

Vaughan Williams drew inspiration from the musical glories of Tudor England in his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a sublime fusion of sacred music and folksong.

We are absolutely delighted to also tour a new work from Iain Grandage, one of Australia’s most exciting, creative and collaborative composers, commissioned by WASO. Grandage's new Concerto is written especially for longtime colleague and friend, WASO’s Principal Cor anglais, Leanne Glover.
