Celebration of Youth
Sun 20 Jun 2021 02:00 pm to 04:00 pm
Steel City Strings biennial youth program returns in 2021 showcasing some of the region’s most talented young musicians.
Hana Lee winner of the recent Concerto Competition of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music will play a movement of the Mozart Violin Concerto in A Major and Tomas Phillips will play a movement from the beautiful Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the orchestra.
Young violinist Elliot Winn will be playing some Bach and Vivaldi duets with Artistic Director Kyle Little and vocalist Daisy Pring (featured artist in the NSW School Spectacular last year) brings her contemporary style to the program with arrangements by composer John Spence.
This year the orchestra held a Composition Competition, and the winner was “Recovery” by 17-year-old Western Sydney composer Adriel Sukumar. His composition was inspired by recent natural disasters and the pandemic still raging across parts of the world.
