Legends of the Past – Sydney Youth Orchestra - MusicNSW

Spectrum Now, an inaugural festival sponsored by The Sydney Morning Herald and presented by ANZ happening in Sydney between March 11-29, will be marking the anniversary of Gallipoli in a special WWI commemorative concert which includes Cathedra, a new work by celebrated young Australian composer Andrew Howes.

Sydney Youth Orchestra will be performing the Australian premiere of Adrian Sutton’s War Horse Suite. The event will also feature a special performance of Loyal Creatures, a monologue by Morris Gleitzman. Both performances are inspired by War Horse and explores its moving themes from an Australian perspective.

In the second half of our concert, Dimity Hall and Julian Smiles will join SYO in a performance of Brahms’ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, followed by the concert concluding with the orchestral epic of Debussy’s La Mer. For more information head to www.syo.com.au
