Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, Dr Nicholas Milton AM opens the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra and Choir’s 2018 season with GALA, a dazzling Italian themed concert, featuring a delectable feast of delicious indulgences.

Revel in this inspirational program as the music of Verdi stuns you anew with its power and passion, Rossini’s wit and ageless freshness rejuvenates your senses, Mascagni’s glorious Intermezzo moves you to tears, and Respighi’s Pines of Rome leaves you awed by the most thunderous climax in the symphonic repertoire.

A true spectacle event, GALA will also welcome to the Concert Hall stage the magnificent Willoughby Symphony Choir under the inspired direction of Chorus Master Peter Ellis to present an incredible sonic revelation as these two stellar musical jewels join forces.

Cancel your planned cruise to Italy – you won’t need it if you attend this performance. This season opener for the ages is a concert event not to be missed under any circumstances.
