Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Illawarra and Southern Highlands Tour

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra comes to Nowra with the most famous symphony ever written: Beethoven’s Fifth.

Beginning with the sound of Fate knocking at the door (da-da-da dum!), this symphony takes a dramatic journey to a brilliant and triumphant conclusion. Before the power of Beethoven you can hear Sea Pictures – music for voice and orchestra by the composer of Land of Hope and Glory – with young Australian mezzo-soprano Shikara Ringdahl as soloist.

Elgar’s five short songs are simple, direct and full of lyrical beauty as they evoke the ever-changing restlessness of the sea. Conductor Benjamin Northey has chosen the overture to the opera The Bartered Bride for a high-energy beginning to the concert.

The SSO will also present two interactive concerts for school students at 10am and 11.30am on Wednesday 23 May. For more information and bookings click here
