WINNIE SU and the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra

Australian pianist Winnie Su, a prodigious talent who discovered her passion for the piano at the tender age of 7, is set to grace the stage with the esteemed Willoughby Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 21. Having achieved her licentiate Lmus.A diploma at just 14, Winnie Su's musical journey has been one of dedication and artistic growth, culminating in her current final year of undergraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music.

The highlight of this musical extravaganza is the performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's monumental 5th Piano Concerto, Emperor, by Winnie Su alongside the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra. Guiding this symphonic masterpiece under the baton is Luke Spicer, a rising star in Australia's conducting scene known for his prowess as a violist and chamber musician.

However, a major highlight of this event extends beyond Beethoven's timeless composition. The performance also features the world premiere of Voyage of the Silk Road, a captivating piece by Ray Lin, winner of the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra's prestigious Young Composer Award for 2024. Lin's composition is an auditory odyssey that reimagines the ancient trade routes of the Silk Road, an historical conduit between East and West known for its enigmatic landscapes and cultural exchanges. Through his music, Lin invites listeners on a voyage filled with mystery, challenges, and triumphs, symbolising the spirit of exploration and cultural amalgamation that defined this legendary trade route.

Accompanying Lin's debut are other musical gems, including Gustav Holst's evocative A Somerset Rhapsody and Ralph Vaughan Williams' ethereal Benedicite, featuring the enchanting voices of the Willoughby Symphony Choir.

This captivating musical journey unfolds at the Concert Hall, The Concourse, located at 409 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood. Performances are scheduled for Saturday, April 20, at 7 pm and Sunday, April 21, at 2 pm. Ticket prices range from $52.50 to $75, offering audiences a chance to immerse themselves in a world of musical brilliance and innovation.
