Steel City Strings brings you much loved and familiar string sounds ... along with something a bit different in 2019

Steel City Strings is joined by BlueScope Youth Orchestra from the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music to form a 40-piece ensemble in this lively and varied program.

Featured artists include:

  • Peter Lavilles, winner of the 2018 Wollongong Conservatorium Concerto Competition, performing Weber’s virtuosic ‘Bassoon Concerto’
  • Cedar Newman, winner of numerous Eisteddfod events, returns from her violin studies in New York to present Saint-Saens’ brilliant ‘Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso’
  • Singer/songwriters Emma Snellgrove and Caitlin Schlenker will get feet tapping with their original song ‘Capsized’, which wowed audiences in the Cantabile Music Festival at Sydney Opera House in 2018
  • World premiere of ‘Absence of Light’, composed specially for this event by local young composer and bass player Adrian Whitehall, who has had work commissioned and performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

In addition the combined orchestras will play suites and dances for chamber orchestra by Purcell, Boyce, Grieg and Piazzolla.
