Event description
Witness the infectious energy of the Australian Youth Orchestra as they present a showcase of revolutionary orchestral music.

About this event

At the turn of the twentieth century, the ancient legend of the firebird was brought to life as Stravinsky published one of his most celebrated works to date. Times were changing, and audiences became eager for a new kind of art and music that told of distant cultures—the strange, the exotic. The Firebird was the epitome of this.

Under the baton of conductor Matthew Coorey, the Australian Youth Orchestra performs a revised version of this epic work alongside a program of equally innovative music, including Aaron Copland’s emotive Appalachian Spring Suite and a world premiere of The Meaning of Trees by Australian composer Andrew Ford. The work captures Ford’s response to the changes in our climate, which have long been spoken about, but that this generation of young musicians are now experiencing for themselves.

Witness the infectious energy of the Australian Youth Orchestra at Sydney Town Hall as they present this showcase of revolutionary orchestral music.
