At their June concerts the Lismore Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ian Bowles, a program will be presented with a variety of well-known classical works by Beethoven, Elgar, Dvorak, Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Verdi and Zimmer.
The concert features Lecia Robertson as a guest artist. Lecia is a soprano who has performed as a principal artist with the State Opera Companies from South Australia, Victoria and Queensland.
Lecia began her career in theatre before classical vocal training in London with David Harper.
She will be performing two enchantingly beautiful songs: Vilia from The Merry Widow by Franz Lehar; and Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore from Tosca by Giacomo Puccini.
The LSO is looking forward to performing at the Star Court Theatre again. The recent renovations provide an ambience and aesthetic beauty which, when combined with the lovely acoustics, bring a richness to the wonderful experience of hearing a live Symphony Orchestra in concert.
