    Perth's most spectacular end of year concert.

    West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Lotterywest and the City of Perth bring the Christmas spirit to Langley Park once again with Lotterywest Christmas Symphony.

    Following the success of last year’s inaugural Christmas Symphony which drew a crowd of 30,000, 2019 will again delight audiences of all ages.

    Led by conductor Guy Noble and soprano Emma Pettemerides, Christmas Symphony will feature a complete program of Christmas classics from ballet, opera and the big screen. Families can sing-along to Jingle Bells and Joy to the World while also enjoying classical favourites including Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess: Summertime and Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular 1812 Overture, as our finale.

    This magical evening will feature more than 150 performers on stage including West Australian Symphony Orchestra, WASO Chorus and special guests including the one and only, Santa!
