After a tough year, Penrith Symphony Orchestra (PSO) will be returning to the concert hall to spread some Christmas cheer.
The Family Christmas Concert invites friends, family, and the orchestra to celebrate the joy of the festive season, with a selection of carols and orchestral favourites sure to delight.
With a hold on events over the past year, there is a sense of excitement and the audience is in for a treat this weekend as they get to experience a wonderful live event.
Highlights include Bach’s Brandenburg ‘Concerto No. 5’, showcasing PSO’s strings alongside solo violin, flute and harpsichord, before the triumphant music of Sibelius’ Finlandia.
The orchestral segment of the afternoon culminates in a performance of another Christmas favourite, Tchaikovsky’s ‘Nutcracker Suite’, music sure to delight with its colour, imagination and sense of the whimsical.
Of course, no Christmas celebration would be complete without carols.
Penrith Symphony Orchestra will be on at The Joan on Sunday, December 5 at 3pm. Tickets from $20. To book, call 4723 7600 or visit www.thejoan.com.au.
