S.T.R.I.N.G.S: A Quartet Gone Rogue
Perth Symphony Orchestra believes that music is for everyone
Come with Perth Symphony and delve into the rarely seen world of a string quartet. Usually only seen in the concert hall audiences will have the unique experience of observing them in their natural environment, the rehearsal room. Whilst getting to know the musicians and their four very different personalities, they will take you on a musical journey from classical favourites to contemporary songs that will have you dancing in your seats! This one hour performance is full of fun, laughter, storytelling and has something for everyone to enjoy!
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Perth Symphony was founded in 2011 and is known as the orchestra that breaks the rules. With over 220 musicians regularly employed by us, we are creating a home for WA talent.
We play in places and spaces you’d never expect to find an orchestra, from sheds to warehouses, foyers to art deco cinemas and aeroplane hangars! We perform music from Mozart to Metallica, Björk to Beethoven and everything in between. Our mission is ‘Music for Everyone’ and by taking the orchestra out of the concert hall and into communities across WA, we are proud to have performed to thousands of people.
We are unique amongst orchestras and believe that our music has the ability to move and inspire people from all cultures and walks of life. We challenge traditions and create powerful, compelling performances that are often unexpected and always truly memorable. We have a track record of producing and creating ground breaking concerts from the critically acclaimed ‘UNPLUGGED: Nirvana Reimagined’ to ‘Faith & Freedom: The music of George Michael’ to the recent ‘Nothing Compares: The Music of Prince’ performed at HBF Stadium in Perth that had the audience dancing in the aisles. Our concerts have consistently performed to capacity audiences in Western Australia and have received standing ovations overseas. Bringing orchestral music to people who wouldn’t ordinarily hear it, and in ways they couldn’t possibly imagine is our primary focus. Perth Symphony brings music to life in a way that you don’t just hear it, you can see it and feel it too
