The Metropolitan Orchestra’s (TMO) final performance for 2022 conducted by Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams, features another trailblazing world premiere by Australian composer and TMO Artist in Residence Keyna Wilkins.

The orchestra returns to the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta for this night of bright and spirited music. Mendelssohn’s lively A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture sets a bright and jovial scene for the music ahead. Led by Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams, TMO then proudly presents TMO Artist in Residence, the exceptional Keyna Wilkin’s with her next brand new orchestral work, the Triple Flute Concerto. Featuring three of TMO’s premiere flutists, this work will highlight the exceptional capabilities of the flute both in solo and in harmony.

The bright and joyous theme will reach a stirring pinnacle with Elgar’s incredible Enigma Variations, a work that is filled with powerful emotions, scenery and wonderful imagery to deliver a fitting end what has been a colourful and energised year of music for The Metropolitan Orchestra.
