Symphony Central Coast ‘One Land, Many Stories’
Several works will have a world premiere: Steven Stanke’s ‘Baiyami and the Creation’ tells the story of the creation of the land as seen by the first humans and Kevin Hunt’s ‘Yabun Wagunmagulya’ depicts the first meeting of Europeans and Indigenous at Farm Cove in 1788. Martyn Hancock’s ‘Aurora Australis’ is based on the colourful display of lights in the southern sky and there will be an encore performance, after many years, of Spike Milligan’s ‘Grand Waltz for Brisbane Waters’, written especially for this orchestra.
Musicians from Central Coast Grammar School and Central Coast Conservatorium will join the ranks, adding to the full symphonic sound. Dr Steven Stanke, Artistic Director and Conductor of Symphony Central Coast said, “This has been a fantastic project to create. Our land is full of stories and histories that aren’t often told so this is a great chance to present these in narration and music to a new audience. There is a strong push at the moment to record our oral history, particularly stories that go back many thousands of years and we’re proud to present our selection of music for a Central Coast audience.” Symphony Central Coast is proudly supported by Central Coast Council.
