Adelaide Symphony Orchestra Concert at Tatachilla Lutheran College

The Southern Theatre and Arts Supporters (STARS) based in Willunga is celebrating its 20th anniversary of presenting and supporting the arts in the Fleurieu. To mark the anniversary STARS is embarking on a most ambitious project and bringing the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra to present a “Sparkling Symphony” in McLaren Vale at the Tatachilla Lutheran College on October 3rd.

The programme consists of Richard Strauss’s Serenade for Winds, JS Bach’s violin concerto in E Major and, after the interval, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.

STARS chair Carolyn Colling states “we are grateful to Tatachilla Lutheran College for kindly providing us with a venue large enough for the Orchestra and we hope a large audience. It is a happy co-incidence that we are both celebrating our 20th anniversaries, and we are delighted to be able to add to the college’s celebrations. Thanks also go to our sponsor Hugh Hamilton wines for their support and for supplying another great local product.”

To add to the local flavour the orchestra will be conducted by Luke Dollman from McLaren Vale, the soloist in Bach’s Violin concerto is the internationally renowned Lucinda Moon, long-time resident of Willunga, and the host for the evening is ABC Classic FM’s Julie Howard, a resident of the Vale.

Managing Director of the ASO, Vince Ciccarello says “The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra is delighted to be able to perform here on the impressive Tatachilla Lutheran College campus. We’re especially thrilled, too, that we are partnering with the locals – conductor Luke Dollman, violinist Lucinda Moon and, of course, the indefatigable Southern Theatre and Arts Supporters. 

Carolyn Colling and her remarkable team really are a vital force in the arts in the region and live by their motto: Keeping Arts Alive.  I’d like to pay tribute to them for making this visit possible – we hope it will be one of many more to come. Special thanks, too, to our Principal Partner, Santos, for their ongoing support of the ASO and for helping us to share the power of live music with communities across South Australia.” 

Tickets are $45 which includes a complimentary glass of wine from Hugh Hamilton Wines.  Further wine can be purchased and glasses may be carried into the hall.

The concert starts at 7pm, but the doors will be open to enjoy a glass of wine or two from 6pm.
