Beauty of nature inspires annual orchestral institute concerts

The Conservatorium of Music’s annual orchestral institute AISOI will host two concerts in Hobart this month.

The AISOI (Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute) concerts are inspired by the power and beauty of nature with the first event being held on Sunday, 11 December at 7pm.

Led by distinguished and internationally acclaimed conductor, Johannes Fritzsch, the concert begins with a musical journey through the Alps in a rare Tasmanian performance of Strauss' epic Alpine Symphony.

In the second concert on Sunday, 18 December at 7pm, Australian conductor Matthew Coorey will make his debut appearance with AISOI.

Matthew presents a programme including two stunning works by Debussy; the highly popular Afternoon of a Faun, followed by his three highly evocative orchestral sketches depicting the sea, La Mer.

The programme’s grand finale is with Stravinsky's visions of Pagan Russia in the brutal and barbaric Rite of Spring, regarded as one of the most influential works of the 20th Century.

AISOI is acknowledged as one of the most innovative and professionally structured orchestral training schools in the country, and is run by the Conservatorium of Music.

The two weeks of intensive rehearsals, tutorials and concerts are carefully planned to simulate the schedule that would be followed by a professional orchestra.

Both concerts will be held at Hobart’s City Hall.

Tickets are $40 adults and $30 concession and available to purchase from www.utas.edu.au/music
