The Lismore Symphony Orchestra will be presenting a program of orchestral favourites including Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 Allegro, Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as music from Bach and Elgar. A performance of The Tumbler’s Dance by Rimsky Korsakov will see the orchestra double in size as it is joined by a group of student string players, many experiencing the thrill of orchestral playing for the first time.
The orchestra was established in 2003 as a not for profit organization that aims to make orchestral music accessible and enjoyable to the community.
There are two performances; one at Lismore City Hall on Saturday May 29 at 2pm and one at the Byron Community Centre on June 6, also at 2pm. Tickets are $15/$10 and available at Lismore Music Centre, La Boutique in Ballina, Duck Creek Emporium in Alstonville, Nature’s Child in Byron, or at the door if available.
