Youth Orchestra

Youth Orchestra

16th April 2018

The BlueScope Youth Orchestra, from the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music, is embarking on its Annual Tour to showcase classical music and orchestral instruments to students throughout the Riverina and the Northeast.

This coincides with the start of National Youth Week, and the return to school for students in Victoria. The Orchestra has 30 high school aged members who undertake numerous concerts throughout the year, performing to many different types of audiences. After experiencing great success touring the Indigo Shire in 2017 the Orchestra decided to return this year.

This Sunday 15th April the Orchestra will be performing at 2pm in the Yackandandah Community Hall with tickets available at the door.

Entry is $5 per person, and $15 for a family. The program will be a mix of classical music such as Mozart Symphony No.25 in G Minor, Brahams Hungarian Dance No.5, Mozart Eine Kleine Nachtmusik for cello ensemble, a celtic reel, and some music from two well-known James Bond Films. There is something for everyone.

On Monday 16th April the BlueScope Youth Orchestra will perform a Proms Style Concert to students from Rutherglen Public School and St Mary's Rutherglen in the Rutherglen Memorial Hall before performing in the brand new hall at the Beechworth Montessori School.

BlueScope Youth Orchestra Manager Tanya Phillips decided to focus this year's Tour on school aged audiences, as well as the general public audiences, after discussions with teachers in which they commented on how important it is for students to see other similar aged students playing classical musical instruments.
