Join this leading national Wind Orchestra for their season-opening afternoon of musical brilliance, with stunning works from contemporary Australian and international composers.

While creating great live music experiences under the baton of their multi-awarded Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, Geoff Grey, the Canberra Wind Symphony also raises funds and awareness to support the work of beyondblue, helping fight depression in Australian farmers.

In this program Geoff and the ensemble bring us a broad range of fascinating 20th century compositions. Australian Ralph Hultgren’s engaging An Australian Rhapsody (1991) opens the show. Leonard Bernstein’s fabulous Divertimento (1990) features, and George Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue (1924) introduces solo pianist Emily Leong to the Canberra concert stage for this big collaboration with the orchestra.

Canberra premieres include Aaron Copland’s quirky Hoe-Down (1942) and Charles Young’s energised Tempered Steel (1997). This special event concludes with Frank Ticheli’s triumphant Blue Shades (1997).

With 40 of the Capital Region’s finest professional players combining to bring only the best wind literature to the concert stage, this dynamic orchestra is taking its ever-growing audience to new heights with their personal approach to delivering a concert experience to remember. Quite simply - they’re captivating, engaging and brilliant!

Be quick to secure your tickets for this one-off event.
