Penrith Youth Orchestra to Perform with Australian Chamber Orchestra
Following the success of their inaugural performance in May 2018, the PYO will present a concert filled with orchestral and chamber music favourites, including music by Beethoven, Wagner and Dvorak directed by conductor Paul Terracini. The concert will also feature a performance from the ACO Education Ensemble, who will perform works by Mozart and Piazzolla.
The Joan is proud to present this exciting performance and showcase the outcome of a long-term vision by the PSO, The Joan and the ACO to build musical and orchestral skills in young musicians in Western Sydney, supported by the Crown Resorts Foundation’s Western Sydney Arts Initiative.
Penrith Conservatorium Manager, Meena Ahn, says it is important that young people in Western Sydney have opportunities to participate in a focused, high quality orchestral program such as this.
“Penrith Youth Orchestra offers an exceptional opportunity for young Western Sydney musicians to be trained by and perform alongside professional musicians from the PSO and the ACO in the fine rehearsal facilities and concert hall at The Joan. During the rehearsals and workshops, students receive expert guidance and advice about the music, instrumental techniques and ensemble playing,” says Ms Ahn.
“The mentorship and support of the professional musicians has inspired a passion in these young musicians to pursue music for the long term, including, for some, tertiary music studies and beyond.” Enjoy the extraordinary talents of the musicians, who range in age from eight to 21, as they take to the stage on Sunday 25 November at The Joan, at 3pm.
