Drink cider and listen to Sydney Symphony Orchestra
Sundays is a day most of us have time where we can do something just for the fun of it. If you like music, then this event will be a great one to attend. Not only will you hear the Sydney Symphony Orchestra but you will also get to taste delicious cider!

This event will be on 29th April, 2018, commencing at 3.00 pm. At 2.00 pm, you can enjoy a tasting of Blue Mountains supplier, Hillbilly Cider, who will have a selection of their range available to try, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.

With each ticket purchased, you will receive a free cider of your choice from the range.

In this Sunday afternoon concert, you can hear some of Australia's finest young musicians performing!

Nielsen's Wind Quintet fits the bill perfectly with music composed for five of the composer's friends to play!

Each part was written to suit the personality of the musician. Sibelius's Inimate Voices string quartet was composed at a time of crisis but turned out to be, in the composer's words, "something wonderful. The kind of thing that brings a smile to your lips at the hour of death."

The sounds of these Nordic masters is balanced by Estonian Arvo Part: the serene Pari Intervallo and his haunting interpretation of Psalm 137 (By the rivers of Babylon)

Also at this event, you will hear Andre Jolivet's riotous and virtuosic tour de force for trumpet and percussion in yet another kind of musical conversation.

The Riverside Theatre, corner of Church and Market Streets, Parramatta, presents the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows in Intimate Voices - Sunday Sounds and Cider.

This will be a relaxing afternoon mix of cider and chamber music when the Sydney Symphony Orchestra (SSO) Fellows go onto the stage with this performance.

The orchestra will be under the Artistic Direction of Roger Benedict, and Intimate Voices will explore the "intimate, conversational nature of chamber music", inspired by Sibelius' string quartet masterpiece.

This programme will highlight the incredible skill, subtlety and passion of the country's brightest young musicians, and the concert will feature twelve of the 2018 SSO Fellows on strings, winds, brass and percussion.

The programme will include the following:

Nielsen's beloved Wind Quintet in three movements
Andre Jolivet's virtuosic trumpet and percussion piece, Heptade
Two works by Arvo Pärt – his moving and masterful Pari Intervallo for clarinet, trombone and strings, and a hauntingly beautiful interpretation of Psalm 137 for trombone and chamber orchestra
Sibelius' Intimate Voices, played by string quartet
NIELSEN Wind Quintet

Cost of tickets will be:
Adult $44, Concession $39, plus transaction fees and each ticket purchased will include the free cider. Discounts are available for Riverside Theatres' Members.
