Event Details

Steel City Strings Quartet will give a virtual recital on the 19th of July at 2pm. The concert will be streamed via SCS YouTube & SCS Facebook to celebrate music and bring our communities together despite the challenges imposed by natural disaster and global pandemic.

Composer-In-Residence at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music, John Spence has dedicated a new work to victims of the bushfires entitled Dark Fire. The program also includes music by Borodin and Prokofiev.

This online performance has been made possible by the Australian Cultural Fund in association with Creative Partnerships Australia, Wollongong City Council through their Creative Wollongong Quick Response Grants Scheme and individual donors and supporters from the Steel City Strings and wider Illawarra/Shoalhaven community. This project will keep some of our musicians and partners employed at a time when there is no income available from live performances.

Follow Steel City Strings on Facebook and join our email list for updates.

The members of Steel City Strings are outstanding examples of hard work, enterprise, enthusiasm and dedication. They reach for the stars and beyond. More power to these wonderful people.

Richard Gill AO

In Debussy's Sacred and Profane Dances of 1904 the orchestra was joined by harpist Paulina Smirnov whose scintillating playing created a wonderful and subtly-nuanced centrepiece for the concert.


A fascinating program of works from various musical periods... The orchestra played with a strong sense of ensemble, and brought an infectious verve to the Mozart.
