The Lismore Symphony Orchestra

After almost three years’ delay, Lismore Symphony Orchestra is very happy to present their Timeless concert series. 

On December 10 and 11 you can hear masterpieces of music that have stood the test of time, featuring timeless classics including Ravel’s Bolero and Beethoven’s Symphony No 7. Joining old classics will be new favourites from contemporary composers Elena Kats-Chernin and Katy Abbott. This is one concert you certainly don’t want to miss!

Other items on the program include: Percy Grainger’s Colonial Song and Johann Strauss’s Radetzky March as well as Elena Kats-Chernin’s Dance of the Paper Umbrellas and Katy Abbott’s Fast Ride in a Suave Machine.

The Lismore Symphony Orchestra was formed in 2003 by a group of dedicated musicians with a common goal of bringing classical music to the people of the Northern Rivers. The orchestra has gradually acquired more local players over the years, and this concert will see over 50 players on stage. The orchestra puts on three concerts a year, including our sell-out Proms concerts held this year in August.

Tickets are available via the Ballina RSL website or you can call 6681 9500.
