NEWCASTLE YOUTH ORCHESTRA Sacred Spaces at the Sisters of Mercy Convent, 30 Queen Street, Singleton NSW 2330
The 50-piece Newcastle Youth Orchestra, conducted by Mr Ian Cook, will present a Family Concert, with two classic pieces for orchestra and narrator - Prokofiev’s 'Peter and the Wolf' and 'Josephine Wants to Dance', a story by eminent Australian children’s author Jackie French.
Newcastle playwright Carl Caulfield will take you through the fun adventures of young Peter when he meets the wolf, while Newcastle singer Ghillian Sullivan will tell the story of Josephine, a kangaroo, who wants to dance when the ballet company comes to town and does anything to make it happen. NYO will take you through a program of dance music to accompany the escapades of Josephine, with hilarious results.
A program for young and old!
