2016 Mid Year Concert

Highlights will include the Intermezzo Strings playing movements from Peter Warlock’s “Capriol Suite” and the Launceston Symphony Orchestra playing the Overture to “William Tell” by Gioacchino Rossini.

Frequent concert guests may recognise the “Sixteen Sensations” by Australian composer Stephen Chin. Pieces from this collection have appeared at the Residential Summer String Camp in 2012, 2015 and 2016, and the LYCO 2015 Mid Year Concert and 2015 End of Year Concert. At the 2016 Residential Summer String Camp, the Preludio Strings played the first sensation, “Gecko Echo”. Now, at this concert, the Piccolo Strings will for the first time perform the final two sensations, “Bubbles” and “Fiddle Stick Fury”.
