ActewAGL Llewellyn Three  – 22 August

The ActewAGL Llewellyn series is the largest of the Canberra Symphony Orchestra’s concert series. It takes its inspiration from Ernest Llewellyn, a true pioneer of classical music in Canberra and who alway strived for musical excellence.

 

This series highlights the talent and artistry of CSO musicians while they play classic or contemporary symphonic works by composers old and new, international and Australian. This series celebrates world-class soloists.

 

In this particular concert, Ravel’s La Valse will be played by Andrea Lam on piano. You will hear Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition orchestrated also by Ravel. Works from Rachmaninov and Matthew Hindson will also be played.

 

Adult tickets cost between $55 and $95, but again if you are under 30, tickets will only cost you $29! There are also reduced price tickets available for concession card holders or groups of 10 or more.
