Come and be inspired by amazing young musicians performing at Four Winds Nov 16th to 18th

Young, talented musicians from the Sapphire Coast will perform with the Western Sydney Youth Orchestra and The Australian Voices in concert on Sunday 18 November 11.00am to 2.30pm at Four Winds Nature’s Concert Hall (Windsong Pavilion and Sound Shell). The three-day Inaugural Four Winds Youth Music Festival will climax with this very special event on Sunday 18 November. Concert tickets are $30 for adults, children 16yrs and under are free. The concert will begin at 11.00am in the Windsong Pavilion. A range of amazing young performers will perform music that they love; classical, folk and acoustic music. There will be performances from solo artists, small ensembles and a very impressive young dance troupe! These brilliant young performers from our regional upper primary and high schools have been collaborating and practicing for this performance over many weeks. They have been working with Four Winds Artistic Director, James Crabb who has been coaching them ready for the Youth Festival Concert. From 1.15pm the focus of the performance will move to the sublime setting of Nature’s Concert Hall after a 45-minute, extended interval/lunch break. Food stalls will be offering local fare, or you can bring a picnic. The Youth Festival will be an alcohol free event. Once the music begins again, the Festival will present wonderful repertoire performed by the Western Sydney Youth Orchestra and The Australian Voices. They will be joined by local musicians and choristers who will sing and play alongside these magnificent ensembles – a very special opportunity for the South Coast’s young people. A highlight will be the premier of new songs, written by Lisa Young (of Coco’s Lunch) commissioned especially for this inaugural Youth Festival. This Festival is a really exciting new addition to the Four Winds annual program. Artistic Director, James Crabb has a strong commitment to music education and has enjoyed working with important local musicians and our partner organisations and schools to prepare and curate this program, impressed by the quality and variety of talent amongst the Sapphire Coast’s emerging, young musicians. The festival has it all .... beautiful voices, talented instrumentalists on guitar, bass clarinet, violin, piano and cello; gorgeous dancers in exquisite costumes, a string quintet, a committed Taiko student and… with more surprises to discover on the day.
