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, featuring a spectacular fireworks-filled 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. More than 40 volunteers will help deliver the event.
“Last year’s Lotterywest Christmas Symphony showcased community spirit at its finest as we were able to bring this new event to fruition. We are delighted to return for another year of entertainment for the whole family.” - Mark Coughlan, WASO Chief Executive Officer.
“The City of Perth is proud to support this event in its second year. Last year showed the connection the community has with WASO’s outdoor music performance, the Christmas spirit is alive and well.” – Andrew Hammond, City of Perth Chair Commissioner.
Families can enjoy a picnic and pre-show entertainment in Langley Park from 5pm. The full program for the evening will be announced on Wednesday 4 December.
