WELCOME!
 
Welcome to our concert - Charismatic Sounds of Young Musicians!
 
This very special concert is proud to be a part of the Hills Orange Blossom Festival, and we are honoured the presence of the Mayor of the Hills Shire Council, Dr Michelle Byrne.
 
The concert will consist of two parts. In the first part, the SYS Junior Orchestra will perform some interesting pieces specially arranged by Kayla Flaxman and myself from our new program 'Putting the Fun in Music Training'. In the second part, you will hear from our Concert Orchestra classicals such as the concerto and the symphony.
 
At the Sydney Contemporary Orchestra YOUTH SYMPHONY, we wish to give today's young musicians the opportunity to develop their appreciation and understanding of music through the classical symphonies, with its melody development, the tonalities and the tempi relationships between movements, and the various timbres of the different instruments in an orchestra. Thus can be a magical window for them to view another world - a wonderful, colourful world! This will broaden their vision globally, and to enhance their learning and understanding culture and civilisation of human society, which can benefit them over a lifetime.
 
Sincere thanks to those parents who give their kids the opportunity to be a part of our orchestras.
