Albany Sinfonia will “break out” from COVID-19 restrictions by putting on concerts for all music lovers in the Great Southern this weekend.

The group will hold Breakout Baroque concerts at 2pm and 7pm in the Kalyenup Studio at Albany Entertainment Centre on Saturday, October 10.

Under the musical direction of conductor Kathryn MacNeil, the performance will include a selection of classics, such as Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, featuring local soloist Alan Burnfield, and Vivaldi’s Cello Concerto in C with cellist Preston Clifton.

Featuring a program of baroque and classical chamber and orchestral music, the concert will reach its pinnacle with Haydn’s London Symphony.

As the region’s only symphony orchestra, Albany Sinfonia hope the concert will provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy some classical music.

Tapas will be available for purchase from 12.30pm and 5.30pm at the event.

The Albany Sinfonia was started by Will Upson in 1995 and has been playing music ever since, welcoming musicians of all skill levels and ages.
