Sound the trumpets – Newcastle’s community orchestra is preparing to present a programme full of noble classics “Fit for a King”.
Orchestra Nova will present its second all ages concert for 2014 at Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre on Sunday 24 August at 2pm.
For centuries, composers have been commissioned to commemorate significant royal events with often majestic and grandiose fanfares, marches, concertos and suites. From the marriage of Princess Margaret in 1960, to the ascension to the throne of King Stephan of Hungary in the year 1000, Orchestra Nova will present a collection of pieces inspired by and written for royalty.
The programme will present works written by giants of classical composition such as Beethoven, Elgar and Tchaikovsky and spanning some 150 years.
In Orchestra Nova tradition, the programme promises something for everyone.
The event will also include a raffle and light refreshments can be purchased.
Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 student/pensioner concession. Discounts are available for group bookings. All ages are welcome.
