Colin Piper:   Conductor
Alicia Poon, 2021 Concerto Competition Overall Winner: Violin


Join the Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra for a program of fantastic dance themed works, including Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances, Ginastera’s Estancia Suite and Ravel’s eternally popular Bolero. 17 year old Sebastian Hibbard, cellist and overall winner of the 2019 NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition, returns to perform the sublime and intensely difficult Sinfonia Concertante by Prokofiev.

When Prokofiev decided to rework his Cello Concerto, he sought the advice of legendary soloist Mstislav Rostropovich. The result was the sublime and intensely difficult Sinfonia Concertante, with its soaring cello melodies across driving orchestral chords. For this thrilling inclusion in our program, we welcome back our young soloist Sebastian Hibbard, winner of the 2019 NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition.
