The Western Australian Symphoney Orchsetra (WASO) is hitting the road with a touring party of over 70 musicians to share a complete live symphony orchestra experience in Esperance.

These concerts ill feature WASO's Principal Cor anglair, Leanne Glover, as soloist in new work from Iain Grandage, and will conclude with Beethoven's exhilarating Third Symphony.

Inspired by the ideals of the French revolution and the German Enlightenment, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony is also a deeply personal statement. This exhilarating and ground-breaking work is a triumph of artistic will over tragic adversity.

Vaughan Williams drew inspiration from the musical glories of Tudor England in his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a sublime fusion of sacred music and folksong.

We are absolutely delighted to also tour a new work from Iain Grandage, one of Australia’s most exciting, creative and collaborative composers, commissioned by WASO. Grandage's new Concerto is written especially for longtime colleague and friend, WASO’s Principal Cor anglais, Leanne Glover.
