The Metropolitan Orchestras (TMO) concert on February 20 will be the first in a uniquely designed 2021 concert season which will see all of TMO’s mainstage Met concerts presented from charming and intimate local venues. Led by Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams with TMO’s dynamic string section, the String Fantasy performance includes works from two well-known Australian composers along with two fabulous pieces from international composers. The evening commences with a premiere from acclaimed Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin who has created a new orchestration of Fast Blue Village specifically for this ensemble. Following this amazing work is the Carmen Fantasy for Flute and Strings which is a variation on a theme from Bizet written by Francois Borne which has been arranged by Brett Thompson and features TMO Principal Flute, Svetlana Yaroslavskaya. Paul Stanhope’s Morning Star and Asger Hamerik’s Symphony Number 6 will complete this showcase evening to kick off TMO’s exciting and distinctive 2021 season. Due to Covid, live access to this event will be strictly limited.
