Our very own Community Orchestra
Everyone who has attended these concerts over the past decade says how enjoyable they are! There is always an amazing variety of music so you can be sure of hearing something that really appeals to you.
Many people also point out how lucky we are to have such a talented group of musicians in the region, inspired and led by Angus Christie who studied conducting with Sir Charles Mackerras in Sydney and later at the Vienna Conservatorium.
As an uplifting and enjoyable afternoon of musical entertainment, the HSO concerts are hard to beat. After the show, join everyone for delicious refreshments in the Function Room.
Conductor: Angus Christie
Rossini Overture to L’Italiana in Algieri
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
Vivaldi Concerto for Two Violins
Schubert Symphony No.3
The MSO presents a breathtaking evening of classical masterworks, including Schubert’s dramatic Third Symphony, a high-spirited and charming romp imbued with the composer’s youthful vigour. Soloists love to perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, and it’s easy to see why, with its vivacious rhythms and hummable melodies. Then, Vivaldi provides an extra dose of violin in his Concerto completing an evening both elegant and exhilarating.
Enhance your concert experience by attending a free pre-concert talk at 6.30pm. Join us for an informative conversation about the evening’s program, where you’ll learn about the composers and gain insights into the music.
