I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Mozart In The Moonlight
The talented musicians of the Sydney Symphony (image from website)
From late afternoon, groups of people armed with Eskys, picnic blankets and chairs, converged on the car-free park from all directions. The natural bowl shaped amphitheatre made for great sound and viewing. It was wonderful to lay back, champagne in hand, saluting the sunset and welcoming the cooler evening air.
The event was well catered with plenty of free water, a bar area, food trucks, good security and clean portable toilets. You were welcome to bring your own supplies and everyone we saw was having a great time.
The main program commenced at 8pm but pre-concert entertainment was provided by some brilliant young Western Sydney musicians. The program was varied with music for all tastes from traditional Mozart of 1799 to the modern John Adams of 1986.The cannons and fireworks accompanying the rousing Tchaikovsky's 1812 Festival Overture was a joyful finale to a magical evening of music.
