Rock symphony set for Kwinana showcase

Gareth McKnightSound Telegraph

The City of Kwinana will this week announce a 55-piece orchestra will perform at the Act-Belong-Commit Rock Symphony in December, replacing the Kwinana Festival, the Telegraph can reveal.

The City announced earlier this year the long-standing event would no longer happen, with a new schedule to meet the needs of the region’s growing and changing community.

Perth Symphony Orchestra will play rock and pop hits by Metallica, Queen, Nirvana and Led Zeppelin in the new showcase.

It will also perform hits by Pharrell Williams, Michael Jackson, ABBA and Coldplay.

The Telegraph can reveal Perth Symphony Orchestra will also be popping up all over Kwinana over the next few months, with a series of surprise mini-concerts in local neighbourhood centres.

The orchestra will be bringing its interactive Play With Us program to schools in Kwinana, aiming to awaken a curiosity about music in children of all ages.

The Act-Belong-Commit Rock Symphony will be a free event, held at Calista Oval on December 2, from 6pm-10.30pm.
