Camille Saint-Saëns
1835-1921

Some forthcoming Australian concerts and performances featuring the music of Saint-Saëns:

Sydney Myer Free Concert - Saturday Night Symphony
Opera in The Bowl

The annual Sidney Myer free concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra return. Admission is free and gates open at 4.30pm, entry is on a first in, best dressed basis. You may bring your own picnic and drinks but White Hat strongly advises you read the Terms & Conditions of Entry before deciding what to bring (e.g. professional cameras and selfie sticks are not permitted).

This concert will be preceded by a performance at 6pm by the wonderful Melbourne Youth Orchestras, and White Hat strongly recommends you arrive in time to hear Melbourne's young players performing at the highest standard.

The main concert entitled 'Saturday Night Symphony' (and which, strangely, contains no symphony) features Leon Fei (violin) and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with Tianyi Lu (conductor).

Sydney Myer Free Concert - A Symphonic Celebration
Opera in The Bowl

The annual Sidney Myer free concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra return. Admission is free and gates open at 4.30pm, entry is on a first in, best dressed basis. You may bring your own picnic and drinks but White Hat strongly advises you read the Terms & Conditions of Entry before deciding what to bring (e.g. professional cameras and selfie sticks are not permitted).

A Symphonic Celebration features Veriko Tchumburidze (violin), Calvin Bowman (organ) and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra with Benjamin Northey (conductor).

White Hat would add the caveat that nothing replaces experiencing the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony in a large resonant concert hall or cathedral with a grand pipe organ. However as you lay on your back and look at the stars you  can add the reverberation in your own musical imagination.
