Orchestrated delights

Lismore Symphony Orchestra (pictured) is a community orchestra, drawing its 40 members from throughout the region. They play two concerts a year and their existence is totally a result of community support.

Each concert is a selection of carefully chosen works ranging from Dvorak symphonies to popular movie themes and much in between.

With constant improvement and the courage to incorporate new ideas in their performance, the Lismore Symphony Orchestra concerts this weekend will showcase the beauty of orchestral music and will feature ballet in the program.

The orchestra will play Lismore City Hall this Saturday, November 21, at 8pm; and this Sunday, November 22, at 2pm.

The program includes Dvorak’s New World Symphony No 9 (voted Australia’s favourite symphony among listeners of ABC Classic FM), Handel’s Fireworks Music, and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance No 1.

The orchestra will be joined by ballet dancers for Prokofiev’s Montagues and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet.

Tickets are $15/10 from Lismore Music Centre (Magellan St), La Boutique (River Street, Ballina), and Duck Creek Emporium (The Plaza, Alstonville).

Or at the door if available.
