  • Our 2017 Classics season got off to a very exciting start with guest conductor Daniel Cohen taking the Orchestra through a fast-paced Beethoven Symphony 7 in March. This week, we are delighted to say that Ashers Back, as we welcome back our Principal Conductor Asher Fisch for two weeks of intensive work and exciting concerts.

    These Classics and Morning Symphony concerts feature our esteemed Concertmaster, Laurence Jackson, in rare Perth performances of Stravinskys Violin Concerto. This is the first time that Laurence has performed this neoclassic gem. WASO gave the first Perth performance of this concerto in 1971, the year of Stravinskys death.

    We think another performance is well overdue as we last played it 35 years ago, in 1982!

    Our most recent performance of Sibelius' Symphony No.2 was in 2012, but these concerts are the first in which Asher Fisch conducts a Sibelius symphony with WASO, and we are intrigued and excited to experience his interpretation of the music of this great master.

    So familiar composers and some much loved music and yet this is in some ways a concert of firsts. We hope that you enjoy them and, like us, are excited that Ashers Back.

  • Harmony Music visit to Castlereagh School A fantastic WASO String Quartet performed for staff and students at Castlereagh School on 9 February as part of our Harmony Music Program. Castlereagh was the inaugural school to be involved in this program, so it was great to be back to visit staff and students who love hearing WASO performances. The musicians introduced the students to the string family and performed a mixture of classical and popular pieces including the Harry Potter Suite, Fireside and Birdsong, excerpts from from The Four Seasons and The Cheerful Cha Cha.

    A highlight was when the musicians visited students in their classrooms after the performance to give them a closer look at the instruments, and where possible, have-a-go playing on student sized instruments themselves. This brought laughter and delight, as students tried touching the bow and making sounds on the violin and viola.

    Harmony Music is supported by Mitsubishi Corporation.

    EChO - Live via satellite!As part of a remarkably busy start to the year for EChO, our Education Chamber Orchestra travelled almost 3500km in one day - all without leaving Perth!

    In a first for our Regional Arts Programs (ReAP), EChO with presenter Libby Hammer performed live for students at Nullagine Primary School, Port Hedland Primary School and Baler Primary School in South Hedland via state-of-the-art video conferencing infrastructure at the School of Isolated and Distance Education (SIDE) in Leederville. The high-definition video conferencing facilities alongside enhanced broadband services at Public Schools across the Pilbara Education Region supports increased access to educational resources and programs anywhere, at any time.

    The opportunity to grow the suite of programs presented through ReAP allows WASO to continue to build relationships with schools across the region, and for schools to access programs not usually available to them:

    "We are so lucky to have had the chance to be involved ... when the children touched the screen let me tell you it was very special to see their faces when they realised it was real time!!!!"

    Teacher, Baler Primary School South Hedland

    ReAP is supported by Department of Education and Pilbara Cities Education Projects.
