On Saturday the 10th of September at St Peter's Anglican Church Maroochydore, there will be a brief and epigrammatic encounter with some of the more popular and lighter 'Classics' played by the superb Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra conducted by Adrian King.

The sonorous tutti orchestral sound of Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture, Handel's Royal Fireworks Music, Coates's Dam Busters March, Elgar's Empire March and Vaughn William's Folk Song Suite will be contrasted with John William's Theme from Schindlers List - Violin Soloist, Mai Yamanka; Ford's Polonaise for Piccolo - Soloist Phillipa Hancock; Bizet's Duet from the Pearl Fishers - Soloists Wendy Selby and Ros Shaw and also an inspired and contemporary piece for Tuba played by and composed by the Orchestra's resident Tuba player John Szkutko.

An afternoon of cupcakes is included, so come and satisfy your senses, enjoy listening to the memorable melodies and toe tapping rhythms of this kaleidoscopic programme.
