"BOLD BEGINNINGS"

Now in its 18th year, the Sydney Symphony Fellowship is recognised as one of the world’s leading orchestral training programs, providing exceptional young musicians with an intensive year-long program of mentoring, performances, workshops, and immersion in the world of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Returning to the Blue Mountains Concert Society, the Sydney Symphony Fellows will perform “Bold Beginnings” an intriguing program of chamber works and arrangements.
Beethoven’s First Symphony arrangement by Carl Friedrich Ebers’ followed the 19th century custom of publishing chamber arrangements of popular symphonies. Iain Farrington has continued this practice into the 21st Century with his arrangement of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel overture. Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonietta is a mini symphony for eleven players and was his first published work that established him as a major force in British music. Peggy Polias is a remarkable young Australian composer whose work explores the relationship between popular and classical music.
