Experience the purity and transcendence of INSPIRATIONS, the Willoughby Symphony’s second concert of the series, guest-starring the renowned Caro String Quartet in a mesmerising performance of works by this unusual yet glorious combination of instruments.

Under the direction of conductor, Alexander Briger, Artistic Director of the Australian World Orchestra, the Willoughby Symphony and the Caro String Quartet will perform Schubert’s sublime C major Symphony, the overture from Mendelssohn’s beloved Midsummer Night’s Dream and Vaughan Williams’ stunning Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

This concert will also introduce the 2016 Composer-in-Residence, Matthew Hindson AM, one of Australia’s most intriguing and original voices. Matthew’s work, The Rave and the Nightingale is an extraordinary composition that will ignite your imagination and astonish you with its sheer boldness.

Matthew Hindson AM is one of the most-commissioned composers in the world, and the leading Australian composer of his generation. As well as being performed by every Australian orchestra, the London Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic among many others, Matthew’s music has been set by dance companies such as the Birmingham Royal Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, National Ballet of Japan and the Sydney Dance Company.
