Local musos to take centre stage as part of special OBF performance

The regions brightest musicians will take to the Pioneer Theatre’s stage for the Hills Shire Council’s annual Orange Blossom Festival this September.

Up to 50 members from the local Hills Shire Symphony Orchestra will immerse audience members in renowned orchestral songs on Friday, September 20.

Conductor of the Hills Shire Symphony Orchestra Chris Upton said the special community event provided an opportunity to experience live classical music – close to home.

“This Friday’s concert features Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – one of the most recognisable openings in all of music,” Mr Upton said.

“It is an excellent and affordable way to experience classical music for the first or fiftieth time, whether you’re an adult or child.

“We hope to see you there!” he added.

The Hills Shire Symphony Orchestra Community Concert is one of a number of associated events happening as part of The Hills Shire Council’s Orange Blossom Festival.

The calendar favourite has been happening for more than 50 years.

In fact, it started out as a humble garden competition, and has now grown to become an event that harnesses all of the Hills Shire’s vibrancy, creativity, zest and spirit.
