About The Event
To match the grandeur of closing a festival that will see thousands of young and aspiring musicians grace the stage across the two weekends the Northern Beaches Orchestra will perform works by a composer whose name is synonymous with grandeur - Richard Wagner. Although originally composed for various operas, these three works showcase Wagner's ability to compose works of great symphonic beauty and complexity that have come to stand as performance pieces in their own right outside of their operatic context. The Northern Beaches Orchestra will perform Wagner's Prelude to Act 3 of Lohengrin, Forest Murmurs from Siegfried, Entrance of the Guests from Tannhäuser with support from the peninsula's premiere string groups. We hope you will join us at Pittwater High School at 7.00pm for the Gala Concert of the Northern Beaches String Festival on Saturday 22nd of June.
