A Night at the Proms, musical rhapsody in black
Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra

The orchestra and conductor are assembled on the stage. The auditorium echoes softly the audience's restrained babble, waiting. Then, by primal intuition, everything quietens. Movement ceases and breathing slows below hearing. Silence becomes a palpable presence. A single violin note shivers through the stillness. Quickly, other 'voices' answer, building to a cacophonous harmony, then a quick denouement. Silence, again. Suddenly, the conductor moves, and with an intake of air, the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra gives forth its wondrous sound.

Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra
Music, glorious music


The Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra is fifty musicians. All dressed in traditional black, they blow, bow, tootle and pound out splendiferous soundscapes. Mesmerising. The orchestra performs publicly about ten times a year, and plays a diverse musical programme.

This year's final performances are scheduled for 7pm, 24th November (Bicentennial Hall, Sunshine Beach) and 1st December (Lake Kawana Community Centre). The programme includes guest soloists, Andrew Pryor (tenor) and Liza Beamish (soprano). Both have toured internationally, holding lead roles in operatic performances.

Royal Albert Hall
A night of spectacular music


The orchestra will perform "A Night at the Proms", a recital modelled on the programme presented annually in London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall. There will be a collection of light classical and popular songs, featuring works of Elgar, Tchaikovsky, and others, along with the audience invited to a sing-a-long of traditional sea shanty songs.

A symphonic orchestra in full voice is a splendiferous and thrilling experience, and this orchestra delivers. Find pricing and more detail at Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra.
