The WA symphony Orchestra launched their 2009 Season at the Perth Concert Hall on Monday night.
Conductor Paul Daniel led the orchestra through some wonderful pieces including an excerpt from an amazing piece of music by Peter Sculthorpe, named Kakadu, which draws its inspiration from Kakadu National Park.
The evening began with the well known opening theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey. There were pices from Beethoven, Stravinsky and so much more. The WASO Chorus joined in too with an amazing rendition of the Hallelujah chorus.
There’s something quite amazing about hearing and watching an orchestra in full flight. I’m always amazed at how all the different instruments fit together so well.
As well as the various classical concerts scheduled for the 2009 Season, WASO will be supporting artists such as Roberta Flack, Human Nature and Ben Lee. The orchestra is truly committed to taking their music to a very wide audience. I saw them backing Glen Campbell earlier this year in an incredible concert.
If the preview they gave us of the 2009 Season is any indication it’ll be an amazing season.If you enjoyed this post please use the buttons above to share.
