WASO’s new movie concerts are proving a huge success. This weekend (Friday and Saturday nights)the orchestra will perform the soundtrack to Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The St George’s Cathedral choir will provide the Elvish voices. My mum is going to this so it must be good!

On Sunday 23rd June the Darlington Chamber Series continues with Brahms  Piano Quartet in G minor and  Dohnanyi’s Serenade in C. Graeme Gilling is on piano with WASO string players.

WA Opera will profile its emerging artists on Wednesday 26th June with their Morning Melodies concert at His Majesty’s Theatre. The program of favourite arias will draw a crowd. Perfect for retirees and those who like soup and sandwiches after a concert on a chilly winter morning.

June 28th and 29th is the top pick for me this fortnight. WASO clarinet player Allan Meyer will perform Copland’s jazz inflected Clarinet Concerto with the orchestra. The pleasant program is rounded out with Beethoven’s Coriolan overture and Symphony No 4. And yes mum is coming to this one too!
