Perth Symphony Orchestra: A Performance for our Planet

Our Western Australian landscape is one to celebrate. As well as our achievements in helping the environment for the future! In the week of Earth Hour 2019, we will come together in a musical journey through these accolades.

This concert will feature our Perth Chamber Orchestra musicians playing a range of pieces inspired by nature from Dvorak to Rutter. The program also includes stunning works from WA's own Iain Grandage  and John Butler , and follows four themes:  THRIVING OCEANS | DROUGHT MITIGATION | RENEWABLES | PROTECTING BIODIVERSITY

But this isn't just your average listening experience; we dive head-first into nature with a collection of footage and soundscapes captured from all over Western Australia which will be played during the concert. The Town Hall itself will also be immersed in nature with native plants surrounding the stage, the evocative scent of eucalyptus gently wafting throughout and as you look up, a spectacular "starry sky".

In addition to this we welcome Gavin Buckley (TEDxPerth ) to lead 5 minute conversations with leading experts from WA based organisations on the positive things they are doing to protect our fragile earth, along the four themes, right here from our very backyard.
