    Event description

    This concert will feature the Newcastle Youth Orchestra and Newcastle Youth Chamber Orchestra. 

    Led by their Artistic Director, Dr Ian Cook, the Newcastle Youth Orchestra will present an Australian Premiere of Arnold Schoenberg’s 7 Cabaret Songs. Often performed with piano, the setting of the Orchestra will be presenting Patrick Davin's orchestration. Our soloist is Sara Carvahlo. Sara commenced vocal training at 14, then continued at the ANU School of Music, graduating with a B. Mus. with First Class Honours. She obtained her Masters's Degree and received a Canberra Critics Circle Award and a Canberra Area Theatre Award for Best Actress in West Side Story and Best Supporting Actress as Adele in Die Fledermaus. Sara’s performances include Valencienne in The Merry Widow, Le Feu in L’enfant et les sortilèges, Miss Silvertones in The Impresario and Adele in Jane Eyre (for Stopera in Canberra). She has performed in the Govenor-General’s St Andrew’s Concert and at Beat the Retreat with the Royal Military College Band (Duntroon). A member of Opera Queensland’s Developing Artist Program, she sang the title role of Annabel in the chamber opera The Songbird and was a member of the chorus of Lucia di Lammermoor and in Die Fledermaus.

    The program features French Horn player Scott Thompson performing the Concertino by Carl Maria von Weber, a real tour-de-force for the French Horn and orchestra. The program concludes with the popular Romanian Dances by Bela Bartok.

    Newcastle Youth Orchestra is looking forward to another exciting year, including premiering new works by Australian Composer Jacob Cummins and, later in November, the haunting Sea Pictures by Sir Edward Elgar with international mezzo-soprano Deborah Humble.
