Event Details

MAP mima presents the Lake Macquarie Philharmonic Orchestra with special guests from Opera Hunter.

Join us as the sensationally uplifting mima Concert Overture is presented to audiences for the very first time, in an open air concert on the shores of Lake Macquarie.

Composed by Dr Stephen Lalor, this new work commissioned for the Multi-Arts Pavilion, mima (MAP mima) will be performed live on the MAP mima stage by the Lake Macquarie Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Christopher Bearman OAM. It will feature Special guests from Opera Hunter, Sam Elmi (Tenor) and Ashlee Woodgate (Soprano).

The ambience of the new pavilion, set in lush lakeside parklands, will provide the perfect setting for this special afternoon concert.

“The fanfare-like opening quickly passes like a brief storm across the lake. The ‘quiet after the storm’ is embodied by quietly pulsating pizzicato strings (like gently lapping waves) punctuated by birdcall-like woodwind flourishes.” - Dr Stephen Lalor

Experience the mima Concert Overture, along with many philharmonic favourites, including Summer Days by Eric Coates, Swan Lake Suite opus 20 a by Tchaikovsky, Adagio from Spartacus (The Onedin Line Theme) by Khatchaturian and Molly on the Shore by Percy Grainger arranged by Leopold Stokowsky.

The mima concert is brought to you as part of MAP mima presents, a series of curated performances that highlight the unique nature of MAP mima as a multi-purpose performance space that integrates art and technology. The MAP mima presents program is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW and the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.

Featured non-Australian music: Eric Coates, Tchaikovsky, Khatchaturian
