performed by National Capital Orchestra
The National Capital Orchestra is incredibly pleased to be back for its first concert since You-Know-What! Join us in celebrating Beethoven’s 251st birthday, after his 250th party was sadly cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Under the direction of Maestro Louis Sharpe in his debut concert with the orchestra, we will be saluting this anniversary by performing the thunderous Symphony No 5 in C minor, with its immediately recognisable opening, symbolising Fate.
Beginning the program on a joyful note is the Overture from The Magic Flute by Mozart, a perennial favourite loved by musicians and audiences alike.
Also featured will be the atmospheric The Blue Mountains by renowned Canberra composer Sally Greenaway, in an arrangement made especially for the NCO. This work portrays the vista of the stunning Blue Mountains with their dramatic valleys and rock formations from an aerial perspective.
In a celebration of young talent the cellist James Monro will perform Kol Nidrei, a soulful work for solo cello and orchestra by Bruch, based on two traditional Hebrew melodies.
This is an exciting and varied program as the National Capital Orchestra returns to the stage for its first concert of the year
