Event description

Description

The Hills Shire Symphony Orchestra proudly presents its first concert of the 2019 season, Sibelius 2.

Returning to the prestigious Hills Grammar School, this concert celebrates two of Jean Sibelius' most famous and well-renowned works. Finlandia is a remarkable tone poem which evokes the very spirit of Finnish nationalism against the backdrop of Russian occupancy. The concert concludes with the mighty Symphony No. 2 in D Major, often referred to as Sibelius' crowning achievement. Strands of nationalism likewise shine through in its warm and sonorous melodies.

In between these two works is Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major. HSSO warmly welcomes our first soloist of the 2019 season, Hills-based cellist Kirsty Vickers. The concerto is a shining and elegant example of virtuosic cello playing with simple, yet effective orchestral accompaniment.
