ILLUMINATE with Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra

ILLUMINATE the new year with this gorgeous concert!

The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra invites you on a European musical journey from the comfort of the concert hall.

Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence begins in the tranquil air of the Mediterranean before taking us directly to the Motherland, its fourth and final movement intensely Russian and Romantic. Bruch’s Serenade for Strings after Swedish Melodies is a beautiful example of his life-long attraction to folk tunes and themes. And Britten’s Les Illuminations, performed by soprano Jacqueline Porter, couples some of his most remarkable string writing with the words of French poet Arthur Rimbaud to create something evocative and fantastical.
