Sydney Symphony Orchestra almost sold out

It's an opportunity that rarely comes around: the chance to see the entire Sydney Symphony Orchestra. It's even better when you only have to travel to the Manning Entertainment Centre to see them, especially when they're joined by four time Aria winner, the exceptional Slava Grigoryan on classical guitar. If you don't yet have tickets to this wonderful event on Wednesday May 22 at 7.30pm, don't delay. This concert will sell out, and it is for one night only.

Music lovers all across the Mid Coast region have clamoured to buy tickets to this marvellous evening, not just because of the superb talent of all involved, but also because of the wonderful program of music scheduled for the night.

The SSO and Slava Grigoryan will be bringing the sounds of Spain to Taree with Bizet's famous suite from Carmen setting the scene with castanets and the triumphant March of the Toreadors. Grigoryan will then entrance the audience with Rodrigo's elegant baroque masterpiece Concierto de Aranjuez.

The evening will conclude with the magnificent strains of Beethoven's mighty Symphony No.3 "Eroica", with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at it's triumphant best.

It's going to be a great evening of accessible and extremely enjoyable classical music that everyone from complete novices to die-hard classical buffs will love.

There couldn't be a better concert to introduce newcomers to symphonic music, so why not grab that friend or family member and share with them a night you'll both cherish.

...And something for the ankle-biters...

It's not just all about the grown-ups. On Friday the 28th of June we have one of Australia's best children's theatre companies bringing a much love Roald Dahl classic to life on our stage.

"Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts" is bursting with laughs and a spectacular rotating set that will amaze and delight the whole family. Perfect for ages 5 to 105 this award winning production comes from shaker and stir theatre company, famous for other hit children's shows including "George's Marvellous Medicine".

This time it's their treatment of Dahl's fairytale bending classic that will be bringing the house down, and disgusting and delighting in equal measure.

As the critics said" It's a rock concert, a Hip Hop film clip, a fairytale and a favourite book brought to vivid life" (XS Entertainment). Book now at theMEC.com.au phone 6592 5466 or at Stockland Forster
