Presented by Darwin Symphony Orchestra in association with Darwin Festival
It’s a milestone year for our very own Symphony Orchestra and you’re invited to join the 30th anniversary celebrations.
A program of three very different compositions feature in this musical night to remember, including Sibelius’ rousing Finlandia. Don’t miss the premiere of a new work by celebrated Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth and renowned Numbulwar musician Don Nungyarryalu. Commissioned by DSO especially for this occasion, this work has been written to reflect the spirit of the Territory.
The performance closes with Malher’s Symphony No. 1 in D major, a triumphant finale to herald the orchestra’s exciting next chapter.
There will be a pre-performance talk at 6.40pm in the auditorium of the Darwin Convention Centre with Artistic Director Jonathan Tooby and Co-composer Lachlan Skipworth.
