Wollongong Orchestra Returns To Stages Across the Region
Media Release | Wollongong Orchestra Returns To Stages Across the Region
Since its inaugural Digital Season was launched last month conducted by Opera Australia conductor, Luke Spicer, Steel City Strings is pleased to announce a return to stages across the region before the end of 2020.
The full chamber orchestra will make a greatly anticipated return to the Wollongong Town Hall, Berry School of Arts and Bowral Memorial Hall across two weekends in a modified one-hour performance entitled ‘Steel City Strings: THE RETURN’.
Conducted by Luke Spicer, the concert includes Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos featuring Principal Cellist, Karella Mitchell and Rita Woolhouse, Peter Warlock’s popular Capriol Suite and a rare concert hall treat; Ernest Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No. 1 for strings and piano obbligato performed by David Vance.
‘The players are thrilled to perform to a live audience once again. It is one of the many reasons that live performance is truly the lifeblood of an orchestra.’ said Kyle Little, Artistic Director.
‘We’ve received regular correspondence from our fans asking about our return to live performance, so we’re thrilled to be able to deliver in a safe manner with eased restrictions’ said Jeremy Boulton, Manager.
‘We now need our audience to make a safe return to the concert hall and support our local musicians once again. We’re encouraging this through reduced ticket prices to enhance accessibility in a difficult economic time.’
Steel City Strings announces its new performance series to close 2020 after its successful ‘Isolation Strings’ digital performance series and its new Digital Season that continued to employ musicians, contract local suppliers and hire performance venues through COVID restrictions. The projects have received widespread support from the community.
