Classical Dreamtime With The Metropolitan Orchestra At The Seymour Centre

Sat 07 Mar 2020
The Metropolitan Orchestra’s (TMO) first performance for 2020 will also be TMO’s first concert ever at the Everest Theatre within the Seymour Centre. Conducted by Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams, this ground breaking concert includes a world premiere by Australian female composer Keyna Wilkins written in collaboration with leading indigenous didjeridu player Gumaroy Newman. Commencing with Mozart’s iconic Symphony No 40, this epic musical creation by the genius composer is as dramatic as any tale ever told, full of elegance and refinement, with opening bars that have mesmerised music-listeners for centuries. Following this dazzling season opener, the orchestra proudly presents a world premiere of Celestial Emu written by pioneering Australian female composer Keyna Wilkins in collaboration with leading Indigenous didjeridu player Gumaroy Newman and The Metropolitan Orchestra in a work based on the indigenous legend of the constellation "Emu In The Sky", from the Kamilaroi people of Northern NSW. Wrapping up the program is Prokofiev’s incredible Symphony No 1, “Classical”. Concise and playful, Prokofiev wittily juxtaposes his own daring musical language with typical melodic turns and gestures from Mozart’s time in one of the composers most famous works which will provide a thrilling climax to this inaugural performance.
